Churchill School

Our Personal Development Curriculum

The Churchill Personal Development Curriculum aims to support students to become respectful and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society by becoming confident young people who can live safely, healthy and fulfilling lives.

The personal development curriculum aims to develop the cultural capital of every student and provide them with a wide range of experiences to inspire our students to succeed in the next stage of their education, training or employment. We aim to support students in learning the necessary skills to make a positive difference to Modern Britain by the time that they leave Churchill.

By providing a personal development curriculum to our students, we provide a curriculum that encourages students to both realise and maximise their potential. As the students progress throughout the school, the curriculum is encompassed through careers, RSHE, PE, trips, an enrichment programme and experiences.

These areas are adapted and delivered in a bespoke way to suit the needs of our learners. Our curriculum aims to provide every student with the opportunities to explore future careers, develop their independence and to have an extensive range of different trips and experiences both internally and externally throughout their time at Churchill. The curriculum is delivered through curriculum lessons such as RSHE and careers as well as an enrichment programme.

Our Personal Development Curriculum

Although the personal development curriculum is designed in a bespoke way for students at Churchill , it aims to embed the key guidance from the national curriculum by ensuring that our curriculum:

  • Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
  • Provides an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.
  • Creates time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications
  • Promotes the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
