Personal Development

Our Person Development curriculum is develops responsible, respectful and active citizens who play their part and become actively involved in public life, while promoting equality of opportunity so all pupils can thrive together, understanding that difference is a positive, not a negative, and that individual characteristics make people unique. We develop pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy, giving them the qualities needed to flourish in our society. Underpinned by our Christian values we promote acceptance of and engagement with the fundamental British values that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.

 

DEEP Curriculum Overview

Pupils follow a 5-year journey and develop a DEEP understanding of the topics within PD at age-appropriate times.

Teaching and learning takes place in a variety of ways, including the use of discussion, video, theatre, problem solving and practical activities. Pupils are encouraged to be critical thinkers and are given opportunities to engage with the issues of the wider world at a local, national and global level.
