"The things that make me different are the things that make me." (Winnie the Pooh)



Education holds children at its heart. We recognise the importance of a high-quality life skills education, from Early Years to Key Stage 2, that gives children the tools required to have the best possible life. As our children progress, they are equipped with relevant learning experiences and skills required to live happy and healthy lives. They develop the agency needed to make their way through the world and positive relationships with themselves and others. Through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, children learn to understand and value how they fit into and contribute to this ever-changing world. At Chalklands, we have decided to call this subject Life Skills, instead of the traditional PSHE because it is more meaningful for the children, is all encompassing with RSE and SMSC, and strengthens the links children can make between previous learning through a holistic approach that runs through all aspects of school life.


By the time our pupils leave us at the end of Key Stage 2, the Chalklands Life Skills Curriculum ensures they:

● understand and value their sense of identity, and how they fit into and contribute to the world and wider community

● are well-rounded, emotionally attentive adults of the future

● are equipped with the knowledge and skills to advance their emotional awareness, concentration, focus and self-regulation

● are resilient and tolerant towards local, national, and global spiritual, moral, social and cultural challenges

● have built their confidence, self awareness, and self-identity whilst learning how to nurture mental and physical health

● are prepared for life and know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world

● have thrived in a safe and respectful environment where all voices are heard and valued.
