Personal Development

We strive for children to develop as well-rounded, caring and responsible citizens. Children's personal development at St.Mary’s is guided by our curriculum drivers and our vision and values.

We have developed a yearly Personal Development Overview which links our school values, British Values and SMSC to all aspects of Personal Development. This timetable is ever-changing in response to recent events, children’s interests and availability of experiences.

This overview includes details on Collective Worship, trips and visitors, performance opportunities, community links, internet safety, staying safe and how we support children’s mental health and well-being. Parents are invited to parent workshops every term.

We provide opportunities for children to perform, for children to lead and for children to reflect. As you move through our website, we hope you will see how children’s Personal Development, health and wellbeing is woven through all we do.
