Personal Development

At PCHS&C we recognise and value the pivotal role we play in building the strong emotional foundations that our students require in order to thrive and grow into well rounded and healthy young adults.  

As a school, we are committed to ensuring our students are equipped with the social and emotional abilities to be confident, resilient, strong, well-rounded individuals. 

We give very careful thought to all of the experiences that we offer to our pupils to support their wider development and we are delighted with the breadth of opportunities that we offer. The students are excited by these activities because these are carefully and thoughtfully planned. 

We teach our children to be polite, well mannered and show great respect for one-another, adults and visitors in terms of culture, beliefs and lifestyle. Staff work relentlessly to ensure that our children feel safe and we have created an environment where bullying and discrimination in any form is not tolerated by adults or children.  

Every week staff and students take part in personal development clubs, every student has the chance to choose a different personal development club every half term, this allows all of our students and staff to mix together and try new things. 

This year our choices for personal development clubs have been team sports, sports hydro, sports fitness suite, singing and signing, arts & crafts, woodwork, computing & machines, baking, relaxation techniques, board games. 

Our themes classes have their own carousel of personal development clubs, and these are Physical Skills where we work on fine and gross motor skills, physio programmes and mobility. Understanding the World where we develop students’ problem solving and questioning skills. Expressive Arts where students work on developing their communication through art and craft activities. Personal and Social Skills where students learn about turn taking, fairness and collaborative working.
