Personal Development

KS4 Moral Issues & Values

At KS4 all students have weekly Personal Development (PD) lessons. Personal Development covers the Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum as well as the statutory Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) curriculum. We also cover other statutory elements such as well-being and careers education.

At KS4 students also develop a great understanding of current affairs, the news and the wider world; this is delivered through form time activities, assemblies and through wider learning opportunities. All departments contribute to the PSHE curriculum and PD lessons are taught by a range of teachers allowing students to benefit from a range of experience. Staff are trained and supported to teach PD and they see it as a valuable part of the curriculum.

At KS4 students learn to become engaged and active citizens and how to make their way in British society. PD helps our students develop their social, spiritual and cultural education, giving them skills which will help them to make better choices and have more freedoms as they make their way in the world.  

PD at KS4 is about enabling our students to take responsibility for their own lives and their communities. We want all students at Enfield County School for Girls to leave school with an understanding of the legal and economic functions of adult society, as well as the social and moral awareness to thrive in it.
