‘Life’ is a process of individual self-development and the development of others.
‘Life’ lessons encourage students to reflect on their past and consider their future. They enable students to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives and understand the world they live in. They develop the qualities and attributes that they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. In global terms, ‘Life’ lessons also educate students as to the plight of others and encourage them to consider how they can improve or enhance others’ lives.
All the units of work are planned to deliver provision to:
•Develop the learner’s self-awareness and self-management to become successful learners who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
•Emphasise the importance of individual rights and responsibilities.
•Support them in developing as members of communities. To become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
•Encouraging them to develop a voice in learning and in the life and work of the school. Identifying strengths, talents and potential to make progress and achieve.
•Enable students to transfer and generalise ideas across different contexts.
