All students at Stanborough take part in the life skills programme. Our aim is to ensure all students leave Stanborough equipped to deal with the challenges of life and have an understanding of how to keep themselves safe.
The life skills curriculum is delivered in a number of ways: through tutor times; in curriculum areas and through enrichment days/drop down sessions. Students cover a range of life skills topics during these times such as sex and relationships education; drugs and alcohol; mental health; careers and finance; learning styles and independent learning.
We have a number of outside speakers and organisations that visit students during lessons and assemblies to present information to students in relation to life skills. For example, in February we have a drama company working with GCSE students on a road safety workshop which they perform to Year 7. In the spring term we have the charity ‘Family Lives’ working with numerous year groups, followed by the ‘Knoflux Theatre Company’ performing ‘Chelsea’s Choice’ in the summer term.
