Like our vision, our personal development curriculum threads through all aspects of school life. It is vast, as we are passionate about giving our children the skills to develop in many diverse aspects of life. We are preparing our pupils to be able to flourish and thrive with the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern day Britain. We provide opportunities that support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development. Our personal development jigsaw helps our children to develop their character along with their cultural capital.
Character Education we define as a set of positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that informs a child's motivation and guides their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others. This gives pupils the qualities they need to flourish in our society
Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that our children can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients our children will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work.
