Personal Development

At St. Anne’s, we recognise that the primary years are a key time for children to develop their own identity and aspirations for the future. As well as academic development, it is essential that children are given plenty of opportunities, through the curriculum and beyond, for personal development. By nurturing our children’s personal development skills, we aim to provide the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, preparing pupils for their adult lives and teaching them to understand how to engage in society development.

Introducing the Excellence in Pupil Development Award starting in January 2024


This award offers a structured framework to evaluate and enrich the school’s pastoral curriculum and assists the school in developing pupil’s personal attributes and attitudes, such as self-confidence, resilience and self-discipline. With a focus on involving local and national organisations, it helps prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.

This award will consider:

  • CURRICULUM- Plan so that knowledge and skills for personal development are embedded into the whole-school curriculum.
  • BEHAVIOUR- Set high expectations for pupil behaviour and conduct, including punctuality and attendance.
  • RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS- Promote positive attitudes from pupils towards their own learning towards eachother and towards the wider community. 
  • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT- Commit to high-quality ongoing staff CPD so that all staff can build and support pupils' personal development. 
  • LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS- Engage with local groups and parents to deliver enrichment activities that develop pupils' confidence, responsibility and leadership skills. 
  • EXTERNAL ORGANISATION- Actively enlist the support of national and international agencies to help raise pupils' aspirations for their future.
