  1. The curriculum contained in the behaviour policy which can be downloaded from our student welfare page, and
  2. The personal development curriculum which can be accessed using the link on the left side of this page


The part of the pastoral curriculum which relates to behaviour intends to help students learn about and practice self awareness. self regulation and self efficacy.
