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 who visit students during lessons and assemblies to present information to them in relation to Life Skills. We encourage students to take part in many different experiences that will enhance their independent learning. Recently we have added a visit to Kidzania to our Year 8’s Options process, CPR training using mini Annie’s which were kindly donated by the British Heart Foundation with Year 12 students assisting with the teaching, Teenage Cancer Trust and LGBT/ Contraception Workshops. Many of topics that Life Skills covers are cross curricular therefore, giving students lots of additional support and information they require.
There are numerous exciting and informative events throughout the year to assist our student’s transition towards independent and safe lives.
