Personal Development

Personal Development

At Mortimer we aim to help pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem so they are able to leave the school as well-rounded members of the community and citizens.

There are six key areas of development that are interrelated and cumulatively contribute to the sum of a student’s development: 

  • Personal Development 
  • Social Development, including political and current affairs awareness 
  • Physical Development 
  • Spiritual Development 
  • Moral Development 
  • Cultural development 

In addition, Personal Development is made up of many strands of familiar subject areas including: 

  • Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)  
  • Citizenship  
  • Relationships & Sex Education 
  • Careers 
  • Wellness & Wellbeing 
  • British Values
