Welcome to the Learning for Life curriciulum webpage
At Longcause School, we recognise that some children will find the development of specific social skills and life skills a challenge. As a result of this, Longcause School has created it's own unique PSHE curriculum which we name our 'Learning for Life Curriculum' (LLfL).
Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education
The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019, make Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) compulsory for all pupils receiving secondary education. Health Education is also compulsory in all schools. As a result of this, our own unique LLfL curriculum has been adapted to fully cover the statutory requirements. Relationships, Sex and Health Education is taught as part of the whole school ‘LLfL’ programme. Our LLfL Curriculum has been developed specifically for our pupils and includes all aspects of RSE, Health Education, Life Skills and Social Communication.
Please refer to our Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education Policy for further information and the parent guides found at the bottom of the page.
Longcause Learning for Life (LLfL) Curriculum Intent Statement
What will our pupils experience throughout their LLfL curriculum at Longcause and why do we want this?
Our LLfL Curriculum is designed for pupils to succeed in their wider lives beyond school, and due to their needs, be able to provide them with the skills needed to live as independently as possible.
Pupils will learn:
LLfL is taught in 6 termly topics, where skills from one topic are built upon to enable further rehearsal (please see coverage map below).
Pupils within the Adventurers pathway will have one lesson per week for both the LLfL scheme and Life Skills based schemes, with the exception of Key Stage 4 classes who will not access practical based life skills due to their timetable priorities. For Key Stage 4 classes, life skills will be taught within Catering, PE and Duke of Edinburgh .
Pupils within the Explorers primary pathway will not yet be taught from these topics, however Explorers Secondary pupils will then begin to be taught schemes from both RSHE and Life Skills lessons.
Online safety is to be taught through computing (please refer to the Computing intent statement). Additional coverage from the statutory guidance Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education will be delivered through Positive Relationships.
Please refer to the British Values and SMSC tracker for further information on how they are addressed in LLfL.
