Learning, Identity, Faith and Employment (LIFE)

The LIFE programme at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 includes: Citizenship, Careers Education, age appropriate relationships and sex education as well as Religious Education.

LIFE aims to develop a range of skills including risk management, decision making, empathy, respect for others and financial capability.

LIFE education helps students to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, LIFE education helps students to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.

Through the RE element students are encouraged to understand the nature of religious and ethical beliefs and practices and to appreciate their importance in the lives of individuals, communities and cultures. We discuss and consider ethical dilemmas and decisions that will face us when living in our society and hope to equip students with the tools to prepare them in dealing with the variety of beliefs and lifestyles that form our society.
