Personal Development

Personal Development

Our most recent Ofsted report, in 2016, recognised that the provision for Personal Development at Marriotts was outstanding

‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding’

At Marriotts we strive to prepare students for their future as responsible citizens, willing  to make a positive contribution to society with an appreciation of diversity and a respect for British Values and equality. We provide a wide number of rich and varied experiences and opportunities through our curriculum and our co-curriculum  to develop talents, interests and an individuals cultural capital. We ensure that our careers and employability provision is worthy of acclaim and our Leadership programme enables our students to engage, inspire and achieve.

We recognise that it is important that our students know how to keep themselves safe and how to care for both their mental and physical wellbeing whilst they also develop personal traits, and virtues that will motivate and guide our students to flourish in their community and in society, with confidence and resilience.

This focus on Personal Development and Character Education are all promoted through our bespoke Character Values Programme with a focus on the seven key areas of Aspiration, Communication, Resilience, Responsibility, Kindness, Respect, and  Wellbeing. These also link to British Values.

How we have enabled such a provision is detailed in the menu on the left.
