Personal Development Days

Personal Development Days are a strand of Personal Development and are run entirely by external providers who are experts in their fields and are best placed to ensure the lessons are relevant and engaging for our pupils.

The Personal Development programme has been developed to reflect the needs of our pupils, aiming to equip them with a sound understanding of risk together with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. Furthermore, the programme builds on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the school curriculum and the statutory guidance on aspects such as drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE), careers advice and support, together with the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

Within this programme students are also encouraged and challenged to accept and be engaged with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of difference such as those with different faiths, beliefs and sexuality.
