Personal Development Programme

Providing a challenging and balanced curriculum which encourages high achievement by students at all levels, ISZL promotes a climate of respect, where students are encouraged to develop self-confidence, positive relationships, and the motivation to learn. Each school division offers a programme for pastoral care and social development to provide the support structure that students need in order to succeed in all areas of school life.

The Personal Development Programme is a major component of the ISZL Pastoral Curriculum, with which all students are fully involved. The Personal Development Programme (PDP) is made up of three school-wide elements that engage students in their development as fully rounded individuals. These three elements are:

  • Personal, Social and Health Education
  • Community Education, Service, Action and Leadership
  • Personal Development Week

These three elements are highly interrelated and links within the curriculum encourage students to clearly understand these relationships. The three elements are part of the curriculum at every division and include age-relevant learning that provides a progressive and continuous educational programme through all grades.

Personal, Social and Health Education

A component of the Personal Development Programme at each school division is Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), from which students gain an awareness and understanding of personal, social and health related issues that are important to their well-being. The PSHE curriculum is defined by the ISZL Strands and Learner Outcomes and is applied through grade level activities and lessons that are age appropriate. The programmes of study focusing upon the Learner Outcomes enhance students’ awareness and understanding of the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.

Primary School

Learner outcomes relating to PSHE are extensively incorporated into the Units of Inquiry in the PYP curriculum. Student learning in relation to these PSHE learner outcomes is enhanced by activities during Personal Development Week and other out-of-class events.

Middle School

The core time for PSHE is during the designated PSHE lessons. There are three PSHE sessions scheduled over each two-week period. The PSHE Learner Outcomes are directly addressed in academic subject areas, Personal Development Weeks, activities, assemblies and other areas of the curriculum, as well as in the designated PSHE lessons.
