Why do we teach PD?

PD is preparing young people for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of life. We teach life skills to help students stay safe, stay mentally and physically healthy, gain knowledge, skills and attributes needed to manage their lives now and in the future, and to be prepared for life beyond school and work.

The aim of the PD Curriculum is to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of the opportunities available to them and to effectively deal with challenges they will face in the future.

PD encompasses the statutory requirements and non-statutory guidance for:

  • Rights, Responsibilities and British Values
  • Health and Social Wellbeing
  • Celebrating Diversity and Equality
  • Relationships and Sex Education
  • Careers Education
  • Financial Education
  • Staying Safe Online and Offline

Independent Learning 

Students are encouraged to take an interest in current affairs as this will help with participation in contemporary issues.
