Enjoy and Achieve
At Friars Academy, we want all our learners to enjoy their Life skills lessons by actively participating in a range of engaging approaches to learning -Thinking Skills, practical experiences, work experience opportunities, decision-making exercises, OSL experiences, visitors, community work, role plays and debates. We constantly evaluate our practice by listening to the pupil and staff voice.
Make a Positive Contribution
At Friars Academy we develop self-confidence, responsibility, and enterprising behaviour in lessons. All pupils actively contribute to decisions affecting the school community. Clear and consistent boundaries mean that pupils make important decisions about their own behaviour and positive
behaviour is expected, encouraged and rewarded in its own right and as an expression of social consciousness and moral responsibility. Recognition of individual worth and development of improved self-esteem are at the heart of everything we do. Pupils learn to express their views with confidence,
while listening very well to the opinions of others. Pupils develop knowledge and understanding that will enable them to become informed citizens and valued members of their community.
Achieve Economic Wellbeing
At Friars Academy, our pupils develop skills that will contribute to their future economic and personal well-being. Life skills teaches pupils a range of skills that will support them now and in the future.
