Life Skills

Life Skills2

Curriculum planning is based on the Courtyard’s recognition of key skills that students who attend our school need to develop in order to live successful lives and achieve their potential.

Life Skills is a vital component of the curriculum offer at the Courtyard. It enables the students of the Courtyard to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in areas which will support them as they progress into adulthood.

We believe that learning the life skills of being able to keep themselves healthy nutritionally, physically, socially, emotionally and mentally is tantamount to students thriving in their future lives. Equally, we need to foster and support creativity so that our students can be flexible in a world where the future job market is highly unpredictable and uncertain.

The Courtyard’s vision for all its students to progress successfully into adulthood by accessing further education, employment or training. In order to do this successfully, they need to be able to communicate with peers/employers through effective interaction and interpretation.

We also recognise that students learn best when they are engaged and motivated. By studying the creative subjects, our students are able to communicate their needs and feelings whilst developing their confidence.

The Life Skills subjects offer qualifications at BTEC Level 1 and 2 and the AQA Unit Award Scheme accreditation scheme.

This year we are also working with the Princes Trust to deliver their highly regards PSD curriculum.
