Despite Ofsted putting SMSC at "the heart of school development" and asking schools to promote British Values and Prevent, evidencing both SMSC, British Values & Prevent Guidance in school can be difficult.
A multitude of methods have been trialled to support schools, such as filling in difficult spreadsheets, writing evidence after each lesson taught or many other techniques all leading to increased teacher workload and a wealth of paperwork.
VotesforSchools takes a different approach. We believe the best way to evidence SMSC, British Values & Prevent in school is through the pupils and students that are learning these skills.
By taking part in regular VotesforSchools sessions, pupils learn and embody these skills in all areas of their education, which is easily seen by any visitor to your school.
