Personal Development (Ages 4-18)

At Roundhay School, we believe that it is our moral duty to ensure that our pupils become ‘recognisably Roundhay’. This means that they are able to understand and demonstrate our school values of being responsible, resilient and ready to learn. We believe that by developing these characteristics, our pupils will be ready to thrive in their futures.

We have strategically planned and structured our personal development programme across our school to ensure that this is achieved. At Roundhay School, this includes:

 

Personal Development at Roundhay School; RSE, E-Safety, British Values, Careers, Physical Health, SMSC, Clubs and Experiences, Character, Equality and Diversity, SEMH, PSHE, Well Rounded Citizens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Explore the different areas of our personal development provision below:

Careers
At Roundhay, we ensure that all students, regardless of background, explore a range of career sectors and have high aspirations for their futures. We break down stereotypes and provide unbiased careers guidance in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks. We encourage students to follow their passions and make good choices so that they have the best chance of succeeding in the next phase of their education, training or employment. It is our aspiration that all students will be placed in either employment, education or training after KS5.
Character
At Roundhay, we believe that character education is a right for all children and is not an optional extra. We have placed character at the heart of our curriculum by developing the whole child through a holistic and sequenced character journey that will ensure that all pupils become ‘recognisably Roundhay’. Through this, we will develop responsible, respectful and resilient children who become and well-rounded citizens and are able to make an active contribution to society.
Clubs and Experiences
Through our wide and varied programme of clubs and experiences, all students will have opportunities to become ‘recognisably Roundhay’. This extensive provision will allow our pupils to have healthy minds and healthy bodies. This will develop each pupil’s strength of character, helping to define who the are and who they want to be. We forensically plan, track and monitor demand for and attendance to the wide range of opportunities available to all. This allows us to ensure that all pupils, especially those who are disadvantaged, can fully develop their character and widen their horizons.
Equality and Diversity
At Roundhay, we celebrate our harmonious and diverse community across and outside the curriculum. We promote equality and teach our pupils to be respectful of all people, understanding the importance of the protected characteristics as defined by the 2010 Equality Act. Our pupils behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with all people regardless of their background, abilities and beliefs.
E-Safety
At Roundhay School, we provide a logical and substantive e-safety curriculum that ensures all pupils know how to stay safe online. Through specific lessons across the curriculum, pupils are taught to recognise online risks to their wellbeing and what to do if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Being ‘recognisably Roundhay’ means that pupils are good digital citizens who are able to recognise what is right and wrong online.
PSHE
At Roundhay, we have planned our PSHE curriculum to develop the whole child and it is underpinned by our school values of being responsible, resilient and ready to learn.

Our curriculum ensures that our children are responsible, respectful and active citizens who are aware of the fundamental British values in a multi-ethnic and diverse society and can keep themselves mentally and physically healthy. it goes beyond the statutory elements, including RSE and the Equality Act, so that our children develop age appropriate understanding of healthy relationships, equipping them to be ready for the next phase of their lives.

Children will become ‘recognisably Roundhay’ as they build confidence in their self-image, gain a sense of purpose in and understanding of the world around them and are fit and ready for their future.
SEMH
Our shared ethos and values feed into a curriculum that supports learners to develop their character including their resilience, confidence and independence to help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy. This supports the journey of holistically creating pupils who are ‘recognisably Roundhay’ and so are responsible, resilient and ready to learn.
British Values
At Roundhay School, the promotion and teaching of British Values is essential to our aim to develop active citizens who are responsible, resilient and ready to learn. We are proud of our diverse and harmonious school and embrace opportunities to celebrate our diversity and to come together as a community. We teach British Values throughout and across the broad curriculum that all pupils will learn. this helps to ensure that our pupils leave our school as citizens who are ‘recognisably Roundhay’ and are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.

SMSC is embodied within our school promises, core values and ethos and enable children to be responsible, resilient and ready to learn at all times.
