Lifeskills curriculum and teaching is designed to give students increasing ownership of their progress and development in school; both academically and socially. Students are encouraged to try new activities and homeworks are focused towards encouraging students to set and achieve personal goals and challenges.
Marking and feedback focus on promoting effort and participation in and outside of the classroom, as well as SMSC and PLTS. Lifeskills is very much about helping our students to equip themselves for their present and future lives.
Independent research, formal and creative presentation of work. Visual literacy, as well as basic sign-language literacy.
Teaching of financial management (planning, budgeting), charitable work (money raising).
In every lesson, students will be faced with a range of moral, social and political issues and perspectives to consider.
Students are strongly encouraged to consider the impact of each topic on physical and emotional well-being of themselves and those around them.
Topics are covered through a range of activities designed to engage students in the positive development of their own identities, educations and social milieu; within and outside of the school community.
