Our Personal Development programme is based on the thought that
Everyone can be successful
Success is about happiness, choices and feeling good about yourself. Together these help to create a wider range of opportunities and possibilities for you.
Successful people feel good about:
• how hard they have tried
• who they are
• what they spend their time doing
• the choices they have made in their lives.
The programme is made up of characteristics of effective learning. They are crucial to children achieving both personally in regard to their personal development and across the curriculum.
The characteristics are try new things, work hard, concentrate, push yourself, understand others, keep going, don’t give up and imagine.
Through learning about these characteristics and experiencing what they feel like, children find out what helps them make good progress now and in the future, they support them in becoming successful.
Like the rest of the curriculum, our personal development programme is planned for purposefully, characteristics are revisited over and over in different contexts overtime.
