PDD 9th Decmeber

Personal Development Day Monday 9th December


Our Personal Development Days are a key part of our planned curriculum and normal school attendance is important. If your child is unable to attend the curriculum trip they are scheduled to go on, they will be working with staff in school on bespoke projects to support literacy, numeracy or an awareness of the world around them. All other planned activities in school are designed to extend your child’s learning beyond the classroom and to develop knowledge and skills whilst preparing them for life.
