Personal Development

Personal Development in Peartree has a paramount role in equipping young people with useful strategies on how to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex world as well as presenting them with many positive and exciting opportunities.

Our Personal Development is closely linked with the social, health and economic realities of children’s lives. It contributes to physical and mental health and wellbeing. It promotes confidence, resilience and it gently guides children towards flourishing in their relationships. It supports pupils to be mentally and physically healthy. It provides strategies on understanding a variety of risks and how to stay safe online and develops the skills to identify misleading news or views on social media.

How does it happen in our school?
