Life Skills Education is a planned programme of learning at Warminster.
As part of a whole school approach, Life Skills develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and positive citizens living in the wider world. We aim to prepare our pupils for adult life through teaching the skills they need to develop their emotional intelligence, raise their self-confidence, encourage them to make safe and well-informed choices, understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle in both body and mind, have respect for others and develop and maintain positive relationships.
Life Skills incorporates the formal teaching of key life skills. Throughout the school we focus on three key areas of learning: Health and Wellbeing, Healthy Relationships and Living in the Wider World (incorporating citizenship and financial awareness). During the year, we have six Life Skills Days when the normal timetable is collapsed, and all pupils and staff focus on Life Skills for the day. Each Life Skills Day has an overarching theme which ties the events of the day together. The planned dates and themes for this academic year are as follows:
- LSD1 – 16/9/22
- LSD2 – 14/12/22
- LSD3 – 10/1/23
- LSD4 – 17/3/23
- LSD5 – 19/4/23
- LSD6 – 6/7/23
The events of Life Skills Days are further supported by assemblies and tutor time discussions and other activities. For further information please get in touch with Simon Rossiter, Head of Life Skills.
