The Personal Development Curriculum

PD is a programme that blends PSHE, RSE, Careers, Citizenship and fundamental British Values to contribute to whole school Personal Development through a curriculum that is broad, balanced, flexible and ambitious. Our shared vision is to provide ‘education for life’ upheld by the belief that education dismantles prejudice by providing a wide range of learning experiences that develops and prepares students for life in a diverse modern world with enquiring minds and an enthusiasm for learning about other people’s beliefs, while promoting mutual respect, tolerance and understanding. We want SJP students to be active citizens who are passionate about the part they play in the world. KS3 and KS4 pupils have an hour Personal Development lesson every two weeks and Year 11 and Sixth Form complete PD in Form Time.
