At Round Diamond, our curriculum has a clear purpose and we have embedded our school values: Responsible, Determined and Successful, and our PRIDE learning behaviours of Perseverance, Resilience, Independence, Dedication and Energised, throughout.
Our intention is to provide all of our children with a wide range of rich activities that enable them to extensively develop their personal development. All staff will promote exceptional personal development across the school. We have coherently planned our RHSE curriculum with our children’s individual needs at it’s core. We analyse data from cultural capital surveys to ensure that our disadvantaged children consistently benefit from our additional learning opportunities.
Throughout each academic year, teachers are encouraged to plan to develop their children’s personal development. RHSE lessons have been rigorously planned to ensure that all children are able to develop key skills that are vital to their learning journey. Assemblies have been strategically planned so that clear progression can be made across year groups and throughout the academic year. We also provide our children with additional assemblies from external visitors that provide meaningful opportunities to understand our school values and how they will impact their futures.
Round Diamond will assess the impact of our Personal Development in a variety of ways. This will include lesson observations and moderation of planning and outcomes. However, it will also involve listening to feedback from our children and how they believe their Personal Development needs are being addressed. Parents are regularly informed of their child’s Personal Development through informal discussions and parents evening.
