Personal Development At West Jesmond

Personal Development At West Jesmond

At West Jesmond, the personal development of our children is at the heart of all that we do and interwoven with our curriculum goals. We strive to create a school environment that develops our children's resilience, confidence, respect and understanding of others and ability to be active members of their local and global communities.

Our West Jesmond Way is a golden thread that guides us in the way we treat each other and the characteristics we want our children to develop as they grow in our school.

The West Jesmond curriculum is rooted in the needs and interests of our children and our community and our core values can be seen in every lesson. Big questions and our emphasis on oracy and the chance to talk allow our children to explore and share their ideas and those of others.

Children’s Personal development is enhanced through a wide range of rich and carefully planned experiences within the curriculum and through extra-curricular opportunities.
