Personal Development

At Uplands we value and recognise the importance of Personal Development for our pupils linking back to our school vision and aims.


At Uplands we develop:

Responsible, respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part and become actively involved in public life as adults


Pupils’ understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance


Pupils’ character, which is defined a set of positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that informs their motivation and guides their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others


Pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy


Pupils’ understanding of how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle, including giving ample opportunities for pupils to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities


Pupils’ age-appropriate understanding of healthy relationships (both in person and online) through appropriate relationships and sex education

Pupils understand how to keep themselves safe both online and in person in the community


At Uplands we promote:

Equality of opportunity so that all pupils can thrive together, understanding that difference is a positive, not a negative, and that individual characteristics make people unique


An inclusive environment that meets the needs of all pupils, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation

At Uplands we enable:

Pupils to recognise online and offline risks to their wellbeing


Pupils to recognise the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media

At Uplands we support:

Readiness for the next phase of education, training or employment so that pupils are equipped to make the transition successfully
