Personal Development At Croft Primary School

Personal development runs through everything we do at Croft and is strongly linked to our school values. 

We aim  to teach children how to navigate through life safely, happily and healthily. Children are growing up in a world that is constantly changing and it is the duty of all the staff at school in partnership with  parents teach the children life skills. We teach children about the world around them, relationships, emotions, reproduction and health. We consistently promote the British values and our school values.

These are the things we want for our pupils.

From September 2023 pupils will be able to work towards an award each year called 'The Mighty Oak Award'.  This is based on our school values.

How do we teach personal development?
