Life Skills & Citizenship

Intent

Life Skills and Citizenship (LSC) is considered paramount to our students’ personal development, health and well-being. LSC helps students to develop life skills to ensure they are well prepared to respect and contribute to the wider society and life in Britain. High expectations are set for the promotion of tolerance, understanding and appreciation of the diverse communities in which we live. 

As part of the statutory curriculum we teach RSE is an important part of lifelong learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, and sexual health. 

The concepts and skills are covered within our LSC curriculum under the three main themes: ‘health and wellbeing’, ‘relationships’ and ‘living in the wider world’, as recommended by the PSHE Association.
