Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development is the overarching umbrella that encompasses personal development across the whole curriculum.
Ofsted puts SMSC ‘at the heart’ of school development. It requires schools to think about the kind of people we want students to be, the kind of world we want students to aspire to create, and the kind of education we aspire to provide.
The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of every girl at Central Foundation Girls’ School is recognised as being of fundamental importance for their education by governors, staff and parents of the school. This is taught through all subjects of the curriculum, including Religious Education and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE).
