At East Borough we have designed a Personal Development curriculum that incorporates Relationships, Sex and Health Education as well as encompassing SMSC and Fundamental British Values. The curriculum is planned with clear end points in mind and learning is sequenced so that there is progression in knowledge and understanding. This enables pupils to know, understand and remember more and as a result, provides them with the knowledge and skills to access the wider curriculum, and develop into respectful global citizens.
Our balanced and broad-based Personal Development curriculum will promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. Our curriculum is designed to equip pupils with the knowledge, skills, capabilities and resilience which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.
Our pupil’s sense of self-worth is enhanced by playing a positive role and contributing to school life and the wider community. Pupils will develop the understanding of how to stay safe at school, at home and online. The Personal Development curriculum incorporates the understanding of RSE so that children know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy, respectful relationships both now and within their adult lives.
