Personal Development at South Failsworth

 

Personal development is both a subject and a school ethos. It is reflected in our school mission statement of Inspiring and creating lifelong learners and in our school values

 (CREATE: Courage, Respectful, Enjoyment, Acceptance, Trust and Enjoyment). 

Our aim is to teach children how to navigate through life safely, happily and healthily. Children are growing up in a world that is constantly changing and it is the duty of all the staff at school in partnership with the parents and carers to teach the children transferable life skills. We teach children about the world around them, relationships, emotions, reproduction and health, as well as transferable skills to help with life. We consistently promote the British values and our school values.

We want children to leave us in Year 6 with the skills and positive thinking needed to achieve their ambitions and to lead happy, successful lives. We want them to be confident, articulate individuals who achieve their potential in every way - academically, socially and emotionally.

Below are the attributes we aim to develop in our pupils.
