At Brookvale Groby Learning Campus, we meet pupils’ entitlement to Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) through our delivery of Lifeskills taught at both KS3 and KS4. The Lifeskills curriculum is designed to be flexible, responding to National and Local issues, through which students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives now, and in the future. These skills and attributes help students to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. From making responsible decisions about drugs to succeeding in their first job interview, Lifeskills lessons help students to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face throughout life.
Lifeskills lessons cover the three PSHE association recommended themes:
Relationships, Health and Wellbeing and Living in the Wider World.
The curriculum is designed in such a way that students revisit key topics each year to build on their knowledge and understanding.
The Lifeskills curriculum is supplemented with assemblies and enrichment events which are delivered by teaching staff and guest speakers, to hear authentic voices and perspectives from the viewpoints being discussed.
The Life skills scheme of work includes the statutory requirements for all students
of careers related education, relationships, sex and health education.
The Life Skills programme of topics covered by term is outlined in the table below:
