Personal Development Time

3.40-4.30pm - Tuesdays, Wednesdays and occasional lunchtimes

We are proud to offer a diverse range of after school activities for the students to opt into. It is their time to make their choice about the skills they would like to develop whilst making new friendships.

Students are invited to make PDT choices at the beginning of each term. They will select which activities they will want to participate in and on which nights. We then expect them to make a commitment to attend their choice for the full term.

Personal Development Time does not run in the first and last week of each half term nor will it run if there is a Parent and Carers Evening or event. Please keep an eye on the weekly Parents and Carers’ Bulletin for advance notification of any PDT cancellations due to whole school events or planned staff absence.
