Personal Development Overview


Here at New Ford we place high value on children’s personal development which goes beyond the academic aspects of school life.


We have designed an innovative curriculum to support children on their individual journeys to gather additional knowledge and skills that will support their personal development now and in the future.


We provide a wealth of opportunities for children’s personal development and we monitor and tailor our provision according to both group and individual needs.  These link closely to our PSHE Curriculum, various SMSC opportunities and assemblies.


Each child has a Personal Development Folder, which they complete regularly and work together with their teacher, to assess any gaps they may have and create their own next steps for the following term.



We organise the Personal Development aspects of our Academy into the main headings:

  • Making a Positive Contribution
  • Being Physically and Mentally Healthy
  • Staying Safe
  • Ambition for the Future
