The Life Skills curriculum enables our students to build and develop important skills and qualities which support them in their understanding of the world, ability to keep safe and levels of independence. It equips pupils with knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. Life Skills provide pupils with opportunities to build their confidence, communication, resilience and self-esteem. Pupils will learn to recognise, accept and shape their individual identities and understand and accommodate difference and change. Essential skills for future employability are focused on through encouraging and developing positive attributes such as resilience, confidence, empathy and self-worth. Pupils engage with various opportunities to make a positive contribution to the diverse world around them in an ever-changing society. Our Life Skills curriculum aims to maximise their opportunities to experience the wider world beyond school, and to aspire to build on their independence and support them in becoming ready for life beyond Dawn House School.
