Personal Development including PSHE


Our Personal Development provision runs like a golden thread throughout our curriculum.

A well-planned, sequenced personal development curriculum is at the heart of a whole school outstanding curriculum and provides our children with a nurturing environment in which they can comfortably explore what it means to grow up in today’s society and develop the skills and attitudes that will ultimately help them lead a happy and successful adult life.

Personal development plays a vital role in supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing and gives all children the opportunity to freely express themselves in a safe and caring environment, where all opinions and values are celebrated and welcomed. We ensure they know how and when to ask for help and to know where to access support. 

Our Personal Development curriculum equips children with the skills to be able to succeed in many different areas of the curriculum, as well as throughout life. It encourages children to develop an ability to work well under pressure and the resilience they need to meet any challenges. It gives children opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Through this curriculum children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

At The Meadows we pride ourselves on rewarding individuals who strive to achieve their best. As part of this, we use a rewards based system called Trackit from Reception to Year 6, to reinforce our commitment to showing our values.
