"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young. Be an example to all believers, in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith and your purity."1 Timothy 4:12

Personal Development

At St Mary's Primary School we firmly believe that ‘You're never too young to make a difference’ and so in line with this, we have developed ‘Personal Development’ (PD) to encompass
  • The principles of PSHE
    • using our Jigsaw curriculum
    • Relationships Education curriculum
    • additional wider safety
    • economic understanding
    • strong E-safety curriculum to support children's understanding of technology and media. 
  • Developing citizens of the future through our vision and values actively contributing to our community. 
  • A focus on developing children's character to facilitate them to be successful
  • A strong understanding of British Values in their daily lives
  • facilitating aspirations for children's future careers 
By enabling our children and young people to develop their own skills, knowledge and understanding of how to be who they are, understand the world they are growing up in and how to keep themselves safe in all areas of their world, we believe that we are giving each and every one of them the best chance for their lives ahead. Our curriculum has been designed with our children in mind and may vary in content to reflect the ever-changing world we live in.
