SMSC through Caritas in Action

SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education)

through Caritas in Action.


Caritas in Action is a document that produced by the Salford Diocese as a response to Catholic Social Teaching, which calls all Catholics to work together for the common good.


There are 7 themes within the documents, which each class focus on throughout the year.


The themes are as follows:

1. Dignity of the Human Person

2. Family and Community

3. Solidarity and the common good

4. Dignity of Work

5. Rights and Responsibilities

6. Option for the poor and vulnerable

7. Stewardship 


Throughout the year, each class look at all seven areas. Each of our Sunshine Days are based on one of the themes and children complete activities in class on those days. At the end of each day, the children often have the opportunity to share their work in assemblies.
