At Haughton Academy personal development includes SMSC, British values, RE, PSHE, RSE and health education, citizenship and CEIAG. A key contributor of PD are RE and PSHE sessions that have recently been renamed RE and Personal Development.
Elements of PD can also be found in all academic sessions with key areas considered through the tutor programme and assemblies. Personal development is therefore both part of the academic curriculum and also extends beyond to include the co-curriculum; it fosters a sense of pride, belonging and identity in our school as it is hinged upon and promotes the core values of PROUD, SMSC and British values. It is the foundation of the learning community at Haughton Academy.
