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’

Since this inspection the school has continued to embed and develop an outstanding provision for Personal Development. 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 to develop talents and interests. We ensure that our Careers provision is worthy of acclaim and we focus on developing personal traits, and virtues that will motivate and guide our students to flourish in society with confidence and resilience. We also recognise that it is important that our students know how to keep themselves safe, both online and off-line, how to care for themselves both mentally and physically, including an understanding of healthy eating, maintaining an active lifestyle and having a good understanding of their emotional wellbeing. It’s also vital that they have an age appropriate understanding of healthy relationships and this is an important element of our new Relationships and Sex Education provision.

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