Personal Development

Personal development at Manor Lodge Primary & Nursery School is built upon the foundations of our school values:

Respect, Enjoyment, Determination, Confidence, Ambition and Pride 

and our motto ‘Aiming High, Learning for Life.’  These values underpin our school culture and every pupil’s daily life in school.


We also actively promote and develop pupil’s understanding and appreciation for Fundamental British Values: Rule of Law, Democracy, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance.

Our Personal Development curriculum goes beyond the national curriculum. It offers unique learning experiences which provide students with enriched cultural capital. By offering a varied and diverse set of experiences, we help to prepare students for life in modern day Britain.

Our personal development curriculum provides significant opportunities for pupils to engage in the following key areas:

  • Citizenship 
  • Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education (SMSC)
  • Pupil Voice & Peer Leadership
  • PSHE & RHSE (See curriculum page)
  • Music & The Arts
  • Careers & Enterprise 
  • Community Involvement
