Life Skills Education is a planned programme of learning at Warminster which covers the statutory Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), and as well as the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) content of the School’s curriculum.

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. During the year, we have a series of Life Skills Days when the normal timetable is collapsed, and all pupils and staff focus on the Life Skills curriculum 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 each academic year can be found on the School’s Firefly pages. The Life Skills Days are followed up in regular, fortnightly sessions by tutors with their tutor groups, as well as assemblies linking in with the themes.
