Personal Development: Key Stage 4

Personal Development lessons are delivered on a weekly basis, integrating RE, PSHE, CEIAG, SMSC and British Values.  Students consider the importance of democracy, the dangers of increasingly risky behaviours, and environmental issues.  The themes of Myself and My Relationships, Citizenship, Healthy and Safer Lifestyles, Healthier lifestyles (Relationship and Sex Education) and, Economic Wellbeing are developed and opportunities for discussion are encouraged.

Several themed days and visiting speakers are organised throughout the year to ensure the most up to date and relevant information is given to students.
