Our policy, procedures and actions for Personal Development run through our SMSC Plan, which incorporate Human and British Values, relationship education and the Birmingham Agree Syllabus.
We believe that the curriculum extends beyond the academic, technical or vocational. It provides for learners’ broader development, enabling them to develop and discover their interests and talents as well as enabling them to be active agents of change in their own lives.
Our curriculum and the wider work support learners to develop their character, including their resilience, confidence and independence as well as helping them know and understand how to keep physically and mentally healthy.
We prepare our pupils for life in a modern ever-changing Britain by:
- equipping them to be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society
- developing their understanding of fundamental British values
- developing their understanding and appreciation of diversity and heritage
- Celebrating what we have in common and promoting respect for the different protected characteristics as defined in law.
The principles for the school’s Recovery Curriculum has been developed from Professor Barry Carpenter’ 5 Levers, as a systematic, relationships-based approach to reigniting the flame of learning in each child.
We support the ‘whole child’ through numerous enrichment activities.
