P.D.M.U. stands for Personal Development and Mutual Understanding


It is important that children’s social and emotional development prior to coming to school is recognised and built on during the early years. Children should continue to be encouraged to form relationships with adults and other children, and to develop their self-esteem and confidence.

Teachers should help children to become aware of the world beyond their immediate environment and to learn about others from a basis of tolerance, respect and open-mindedness. They should encourage them to understand similarities and respect differences in people in the local and wider community.

Personal Development and Mutual Understanding (PD&MU) focuses on encouraging each child to become personally, emotionally and socially effective, to lead healthy, safe and fulfilled lives and to become confident, independent and responsible citizens, making informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives.
