Personal Development Curriculum
Consistent with our Catholic school vision, the aim of the Personal Development curriculum is to enable students to become effective members of society, able to take advantage of future opportunities, contribute to their community as active citizens and navigate a changing world guided by strong moral principles.
To achieve this, we equip students with the knowledge and understanding of the real world, developing the whole person so that students have the personal attributes to sit alongside their academic knowledge. This involves equipping them with the knowledge and competencies to remain safe and healthy, to understand the employment opportunities which exist and how to take advantage of these, to interact with people from diverse backgrounds with respect and tolerance, to form and sustain healthy and committed relationships, and to develop a strong moral compass which guides them in their decisions.
Our curriculum is built around key themes of developing character and values, treating others with respect and compassion, being healthy, being safe, being a global citizen and being successful in life.
This ensures that our curriculum encompasses statutory and non-statutory aspects of:
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
Citizenship; PSHE; SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development)
CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance)
