Personal Development

Personal Development is at the heart of our Rights Respecting school curriculum learning journey.  It develops, promotes and enables a range of skills that allow our children to be really effective life-long learners.

Together, our school community learn about UNICEF children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. Children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.

We support every child to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their emotions, feelings and to learn to communication these effectively through an ethos and culture of inclusion and mutual respect.

As part of a whole-school approach, PD education develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. The benefits to pupils of such an approach are numerous as PD prepares them to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times.

It also helps pupils to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.

Our whole school approach promotes effective relationships between all members of the school community. The promotion of pupils’ personal and social development underpins other learning. PD education contributes to assists children and young people to build:

  • their personal identities,
  • confidence
  • self-esteem
  • understanding of their own decision-making.

Developing self-understanding, empathy and the ability to work with others helps our pupils to enjoy healthy and productive relationships in all aspects of their lives. Our talented team adapt and responding to the approach that enables each individual to be successful.

Skills Children Learn:

Always in an age appropriate way, we help the children shape and manage their lives, now and in the future, and help them to learn every day essential, life skills, including:

  • The Development of self-understanding, empathy and healthy, productive relationships
  • Relationships Education
  • Eating healthily
  • Keeping safe on the road
  • How to stay safe on the internet
  • The promotion of good mental health

Relationship Education

From September 2020, Relationships Education is now compulsory in Primary Schools.

In keeping with our School ethos, the children are encouraged, and frequently reminded, to speak to a trusted adult when they have any concerns or worries.

To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy.

Pupils can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts.
