Pupil Provision – Personal Development Sessions

At the start of 2016/2017 academic year, we introduced a rolling programme for all students within our school which focused on developing life skills that helps to ensure students remain safe, happy and healthy both in and out of school. ‘Personal Development’ lessons take place every half term, with six sessions in total per academic year. The timetable is collapsed during these sessions and staff lead sessions to our young people in their areas of strength. In 2016/2017, students gained further information on the following topics:

Road Safety
Drugs and Alcohol
Internet Safety
Physical Health and Diet

The sessions are delivered to students in year groups and then they will be split further into house groups so that students have the chance to ask questions and take an active role within each one hour session.  All sessions have been carefully planned so that the content is at the correct level for each specific year group.

During the 2017/2018 academic year, we will continue to deliver this rolling programme as the feedback from the students during the last academic year was extremely positive. This year we will focus on the following topics:

Radicalisation and Extremism
Children’s Rights (including FGM)
Substance Misuse
Cyber Safety
Emotional Health and Well-being
