Learning for Life

Curriculum Intent and Rationale

Our Learning for Life curriculum enables students to develop powerful knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, prepared for life in modern Britain, both now and in the future. Our broad and balanced spiral curriculum builds on knowledge from year to year to develop independent, mature learners who are inquisitive and who challenge and reflect on what is being taught. Embedded within the curriculum are opportunities to explore three main themes; positive relationships, living in the wider world, and health and wellbeing. 

All students have weekly Learning for Life sessions with their form tutors. Content is also embedded within Wellbeing lessons.  The curriculum is also supported by visits from external speakers and leaders.
