Overview of Personal Development at West Vale Academy

Personal Development at West Vale Academy 

Here at West Vale Academy, we are preparing our pupils to be able to flourish and thrive with the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern day Britain. We provide opportunities that support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.

Our curriculum is inclusive and meets the needs of all our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) by adapting teaching and learning to suit all children and all abilities. We ensure that our curriculum fosters gender equality and LGBT+ equality by ensuring the quality of an inclusive and diverse curriculum. Our teachers have the freedom to design their long term plans to suit the needs of their class looking at PSHCE links throughout the whole school curriculum. Through our PSHCE education, we teach pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, to manage their lives, now and in the future.
