Life Education

At Wensley Fold we will be following a scheme of work tailored to the needs of our pupils. Each class has timetabled Life Education time but we encourage a cross curricular approach to the development of Life Education.

Life Education is embedded throughout daily life at Wensley Fold. We model positive relationships, self-image and communication skills with others in all of our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in Circle Time and in Life Education sessions including our annual themed campaigns (eg friendship week, white Christmas campaign, one treat a day etc.) which have a different focus each year according to the needs of our pupils and our community. In our programmes we actively promote British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs to prepare our pupils for life in modern day Britain. Our citizenship lessons enable our pupils to understand the British democratic process and how to effect peaceful change in society.

At Wensley Fold we make each day count and aim to ensure that we produce well-rounded, happy, healthy, resilient children – ready for the wider world.

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

We are proud to be a part of the PSHE Association and use its many resources to support our learning and keep us up to date with this ever changing area of the curriculum

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
