Personal Development – Intent at Wixams Academy
Our priority is to develop responsible, respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part and become actively involved in public life as adults. Our values underpin how we treat each other and contribute within the Academy community.
We continually strive to improve our pupils’ understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law, mutual respect and tolerance.
We ensure that pupils have ample opportunities to develop confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy. Students will know how to effectively seek help and support when necessary.
Wixams pupils will understand how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle and are given a wide range of opportunities to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities.
Wixams pupils will develop an age-appropriate understanding of healthy relationships through appropriate relationships and sex education.
