PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

At The Chantry High School we want to do everything we can to support our students learning and personal growth. It is for this reason that we have launched an accredited student leadership course with all of our students from year 7 right the way through to year 11. The course is nationally recognised through the PiXL organisation and is designed to help students to develop the skills desired by employers and that are necessary for future success.

PiXL Edge helps students to develop the LORIC attributes. The acronym LORIC stands for:

  • Leadership
    • Organisation
    • Resilience
    • Initiative
    • Communication

PiXL Edge has three levels of challenge, Apprentice, Graduate and Masters. It is designed so that students start on the Apprentice level in year 7 with most completing this by the end of year 8 in their Personal Development (PD) lessons. In years 9 and 10 students will then work towards the Graduate level during form time and at home. Some students will go even further and in years 11 to begin the Masters level.

All students have login and password details for the PiXL Edge website. The website contains a database of challenges that can be searched by LORIC attribute, key word or subject. The database contains hundreds of challenges. If a suitable challenge cannot be found students can speak to their PD teacher, form tutor, Mrs Blunt or Miss Palmer to suggest a new challenge. New challenges can then be submitted to PiXL, and if approved will appear on the database in a few working days.

Once a challenge is selected students will write a short description of what they intend to do. Once the challenge is complete they then need to complete a short evaluative reflection on how the activity helped them to develop the LORIC attribute, (e.g. Leadership). Help and support is offered to pupils through PD lessons and form time to help complete their journey of personal development with us.
