Success for All within a Christ Centred Community

Personal Development and Wider Development

Here at St Monica's, we are determined to help our pupils' reach their potential, both academically and outside the classroom.


We want to develop:


  • Responsible, respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part and become actively involved in public life as adults 
  • Pupils’ understanding of the fundamental British Values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance 
  • Pupils’ character and virtues that informs their motivation and guides their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others 
  • Pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy 
  • Pupils’ understanding of how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle, including giving ample opportunities for pupils to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities 
  • Pupils’ age-appropriate understanding of healthy relationships through appropriate relationships and sex education 


We aim to promote:


  • Equality of opportunity so that all pupils can thrive together, understanding that difference is a positive, not a negative, and that individual characteristics make people unique 
  • An inclusive environment that meets the needs of all pupils, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation 


Our curriculum enables:


  • Pupils to recognise online and offline risks to their wellbeing  radicalisation and extremism – and making them aware of the support available to them 
  • Pupils to recognise the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media 
  • Readiness for the next phase of education, training or employment so that pupils are equipped to make the transition successfully 


On this page, we will give clear examples of this 'wider curriculum' that we provide.
