Personal development and Enrichment


At Whiston Worrygoose, we believe that it is our moral duty to ensure that our pupils become wonderful members of our community and develop their cultural capital over time. This means that they are able to know, understand and demonstrate our school values of Ambition, Respect, Determination, Integrity and Tolerance. We believe that by developing these characteristics, our pupils will become responsible, respectable, and active citizens that can play their part in public life as adults.


Our Personal Development programme deepens pupils’ understanding of the fundamental British values of Democracy, Individual Liberty, the Rule of Law, Mutual Respect and Tolerance. We promote equality of opportunity and diversity by promoting an inclusive environment that meets the needs of all our pupils. By developing pupils’ character, we ensure they have positive personality traits and virtues that help them be motivated, eager learners who behave with integrity and respect.


Everything we do ensures that our children develop spiritually, morally, socially, and culturally so that they are ready to thrive as a member of society. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils engage with views, beliefs, and opinions that are different from their own in considered ways.

We have strategically planned and structured our extensive personal development curriculum and extracurricular activities so pupils can access a wide, rich set of experiences, including powerful discussions and debates. As a result, there are many opportunities for pupils to develop their personal talents and interests across our school.
