The Personal Development curriculum is designed to be diverse, modern and engaging. It is a curriculum that supports all students to become successful global citizens with the skills, knowledge and confidence to have a positive impact on our community. Inclusion is at the heart of our curriculum, which has been specifically designed for our vibrant, culturally rich and diverse cohort. We want our students to embrace and challenge different aspects of society through understanding, reflection upon previous experiences and making the most of the numerous opportunities provided to explore the skills, concepts and experiences required for the next stage of their educational journey.
Our curriculum promotes spiritual, moral and cultural development and incorporates good quality relationships and sex education, as well as focusing on the physical, mental and social well-being of staff and students. Our curriculum reinforces the need to be tolerant, recognises the power of democracy and celebrates success.
Our curriculum covers:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the Wider world
- Careers Education
The themes are built upon each year and lessons within these themes cover the statutory requirements for RSE and Health and Wellbeing, Citizenship and British Values. Personal Development lessons also meet the requirements of the Gatsby benchmarks.
