Personal Development

At Lostwithiel Primary School we are not simply focused on ensuring that every pupil reaches their academic potential, we ensure that we provide a wide variety of opportunities for our pupils to:
  • become personally, emotionally, socially and physically effective;
  • lead healthy, safe and fulfilled lives;
  • become confident, independent and responsible citizens, making informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives
We achieve this through a carefully planned Personal Development curriculum where we support children to develop resilience, confidence and respect so that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education and are ready to take their place in society when they reach adulthood.
Lostwithiel Economic Curriculum
A key part of our personal development programme is our economic curriculum where we teach children about the value of money, how bank accounts work, why budgeting and saving are important and many other valuable aspects of money management. These lessons are often practical, particularly in the early years.
