Personal Development

Personal Development

Personal development is at the heart of what we offer our pupils. Our RSE & PSHE curriculum is a significant part of our Personal Development strategy but other curriculum areas and wider opportunities also provide the platform for developing the knowledge, attitudes, skills, relationships and behaviours that our pupils will need now and in their future years.

Personal development aims to develop a wide range of skills, strategies and coping mechanisms which our pupils can take with them to help them to be successful in their future lives, whether that be; future relationships, future careers, future decisions relating to their health and wellbeing or future contributions to society.

By the time our pupils reach Year 6, they would have developed a wide range of skills and strategies which they can take with them into secondary school and beyond. Our goal is that all our pupils become active citizens who understand their role in society and who can go on to make a positive contribution.

At our schools, personal development is taught and approached through:

  • Our ambitious RSE & PSHE curriculum
  • Our carefully defined Safeguarding Curriculum
  • Our explicit teaching of British Values
  • Character development through alignment with our School Values
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural (SMSC) opportunities embedded into the curriculum
  • A carefully curated wider opportunities offer (e.g. enrichment and extra-curricular)
  • Promoting an inclusive environment
  • Explicitly embedding the protected characteristics into our curriculum
  • Actively supporting the development of our pupils becoming well-educated global citizens
