Life ready

Community integration supports our learners to fully access the community, providing meaningful life experiences, applicable to future living.

Learners will develop skills in knowing themselves; building confidence, recognising self-worth, owning problem-solving strategies, and knowing who can help. This curriculum learning area promotes skills in team building, working with others to achieve a single goal, assertiveness, having a voice, negotiation, accepting others’ opinions and resilience.

There is a focus on helping learners understand their emotional and sensory needs, where the multidisciplinary team supports learners to apply self-regulation techniques.

All learners access and improve their engagement with the public community, including a comprehensive travel training scheme. Learners are encouraged to plan and organise access to community areas or activities to experience inclusive citizenship, leisure interests, social autonomy, safety, and self-advocacy, forming part of our PSHE programme.



We deliver weekly PSHE (personal, social, health, economic) education sessions.

  • friends and relationships
  • respecting others
  • get healthy
  • culture
  • our history
  • is life fair?

Relationships and sex education support is planned and delivered on an individual bespoke basis, according to learner needs.
