Life Skills

At Northfield School, our Life Skills curriculum helps to provide pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they require to prepare them to play a full and active part in society.

The curriculum is designed to equip pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments.

It provides pupils with drug education, financial education, relationship and sex education (RSE) and promotes the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

The Life Skills curriculum is underpinned by our wider programme of personal development and supported by strong links to other curriculum areas. Retention of the critical knowledge developed through the Life Skills curriculum is given value and reinforced in MFT through Throwback Thursday / Flashback Friday.
