Easington Academy classroom


At Easington Academy we recognise that a student's personal development plays an important role in their ability to learn and achieve. Social, moral, spiritual and cultural (SMSC) themes permeate our curriculum, assemblies and 'Thought for the Day' programme.

We provide many ways for students to explore and develop morally, socially, spiritually and culturally. The activites listed below are a flavour of the SMSC learning we offer:
