Personal Development at SJP

Personal Development is a core part of our pupils SJP journey. Our intent is to nurture happy, healthy young people who have the knowledge, academic achievement and strength of character to lead safe and successful lives in modern Britain, preparing them for their next steps in education or employment with a thirst for lifelong learning. We ensure that every member of our school community knows that we are committed to supporting their physical health, safety, and emotional wellbeing throughout their journey with us. 

At SJP we have a whole school approach to our Personal Development provision. We combine several areas of school life including our Personal Development Curriculum, Citizenship education, promotion of SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural), British Values, Careers, Equality and Diversity, Mental Health and Wellbeing Enrichment. We ensure each area of the Personal Development curriculum delivers all aspects of the statutory guidance and reflects our specific needs as a school community.
