Our curriculum is designed to help pupils gain the skills knowledge and understanding they need to lead, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
All our pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the school and the wider community. In doing so, pupils learn to recognise their own worth, develop a sense of their own identity and the ability to take their place in the community as well as respect and work with others. Pupils are encouraged to reflect on their experiences and to recognise how they are developing personally and socially, addressing the spiritual social, moral and cultural issues that form an intrinsic part of growing up.
At Mayfield, our intent has been to construct and deliver a personal development curriculum that is academic, and beyond which is;
Key parts of our personal development curriculum are;
We believe it is essential that ‘Personal Development’ underpins and is the foundation of every part of our school. Character attributes such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication alongside our Mission Statement values are not just taught as discrete lessons but woven into activities across the whole curriculum. That way, pupils are able to appreciate how character development plays a meaningful role in enhancing everything they do.
We want our pupils to be ready for the world in which they live, ready to interact and live within society successfully. We hope that from our personal development provision at Mayfield, pupils’ character will have been developed so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others.
