At St Bridget's our curriculum extends beyond the academic, technical and vocational. Personal Development encompasses the principles of HRSE (Human, Relationship and Sex Education), SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural), British Values and Cultural Capital and is part of our children's learning journey at St Bridget's.

We support children to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, Personal Development education develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. The benefits to pupils of such an approach are numerous as PD prepares them to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfill their academic potential.
