What is SMSC?

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, including citizenship and personal development, is a strong feature of CFS. It is taught throughout the curriculum and is informed by the ethos, vision, values and mission of our school. At CFS we put a strong emphasis on the development of character to fulfil our Biblical mandate to become effective global citizens, serving our community, the city and beyond, developing young people who are engaged and active citizens in modern Britain. We pursue the aim of becoming increasingly Christ-centred in all aspects of teaching and learning and community life.
