Schools

Building on your school’s existing PSHE provision, and aligned with the National Healthy Schools objectives, we work with you to develop fun, progressive and interactive activities to enhance the life skills of your pupils.

By working with schools to tailor our Life Education sessions to a class’s specific  age, curriculum framework and needs, we can build children’s knowledge, confidence and ability to make informed life choices.

Six reasons why schools book a Life Education visit.

 

Our Core Programmes for Nursery to Year 6 Groups

The programmes Life Education Wessex & Thames Valley provide are supported with a resource pack to assist you with follow up work in the classroom.

Parents and carers are offered the opportunity to visit the mobile classroom and find out what we do.  A Home Activity Sheet is provided for each year group for schools to distribute which summarises our work and explains our aims.
