My Personal Best - Character Education

My Personal Best promotes a whole school approach to teaching and learning in PE, where life skills and values such as self-belief, co-operation, responsibility and resilience are taught explicitly through PE.

The My Personal Best life skills are grouped into three areas: Healthy Me, Social Me and Thinking Me.

Being part of this project gives you access to three sets of resources:

Please note that the Makaton resources are to be used alongside either the My PB Primary or Secondary resources, dependent on your setting and needs of your pupils.

Healthy Me

Supports pupils to develop the personal traits that underpin good health and wellbeing and their personal achievement.

Social Me

Supports pupils to develop the traits that help them to understand others and work well with other people.

Thinking Me

Supports pupils to develop the cognitive and creative traits that enable them to create opportunities, overcome challenges and make choices.

Through this project, you will support young people to:

  • develop and apply life skills that will support them to flourish in PE, school and life
  • have improved health and wellbeing and personal skills
  • be better at understanding and working with others (social skills)
  • be able to create opportunities, overcome challenges and make choices (thinking skills)
  • increase their potential achievement and readiness for life.
