Life Skills & Wellbeing

Life Skills and Wellbeing is the name given to our curriculum delivery of what used to be known as PSHE. Every week students will study a current topic connected to one of our key themes.

These are:

  • Health and Wellbeing

  • Living in the Wider World

  • Relationships and Sexual Education (RSE)

This section contains documents and links to helpful content surrounding Life Skills and Wellbeing topics.

LGBTQ+ Support, Advice & Information

Understanding pronouns

She/her, they/them and he/his. What are they, and why are individuals using them?

Terminology surrounding gender identity and expression

Everyone has a gender identity. For some people, their gender identity corresponds with the gender assigned at birth, for others it does not. Gender identities that differ from the sex assigned at birth, including ones beyond the binary, as well as the ways in which we express them, have existed across the world, for as long as life has existed.

Parental Guides and Support for the Digital World

Video Games

Video games are a huge part of a modern teenager's life. Whilst video games can be a great creative outlet and can help to build important skills, they can also become addictive and make your child vulnerable to negative online communications.

 

The Metaverse

The metaverse is an online environment where people interact, play games and express themselves, but not everyone has good intentions.

  • This guide will help you navigate your way to understanding 'The Metaverse'.

 

Youtube

Music videos regularly exceed 50 million views inside their first hour on the platform: that's almost a million views a minute. It’s easy to understand why many are concerned about harmful clips featuring profanity, sex or violence being equally likely to go viral rapidly. The guide also highlights YouTube’s other potential risks.
