Individual Liberty

Within DESC, students are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for all students to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and an empowering approach through their education. Students are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely, For example through our E-Safety, Personal Social Development and Prince’s Trust sessions, also though use of debates, role play, theatre workshops which target specific issues such as child exploitation, safe behaviours and relationships. Students are given the freedom to make a wide range of choices, from attending extra-curricular activities and events within the local area in order to bridge the gap between our students and community.
