Our work with schools
Life Education contributes to primary school PSHE provision by achieving agreed learning outcomes. Our aim is to work closely alongside schools and teachers to ensure lessons are effectively tailored to a class’s specific age, curriculum framework, and needs.

The sessions have been designed and  are delivered in such a way to build on your school’s existing PSHE provision. Using interactive activities we focus on children’s self esteem, ability to make informed life choices and hopefully enhancing the life skills of young people now and for their future.

“The workshop was incredible, the children thoroughly enjoyed it and were captivated from the very start of the session. I definitely will be recommending these workshops.”

(East Midlands Primary Teacher)


Why Life Education?
Our programmes, our delivery and the environment are:

EMPOWERING – young people with the skills and self-confidence to put their decisions into practice.
IMPACTFUL – Unforgettable, fun and inspiring sessions.
TAILORED – to the needs and themes of your school to complement and enhance your existing curriculum.
TOP QUALITY – sessions created by child development experts in line with current best practice.
EVIDENCE – Individual report for your school summarising pupil and teacher feedback, contributing towards your
portfolio of evidence for the Ofsted inspection framework particularly relating to Behaviour and Safety.

Our specially designed life space provides unique environment, equipped with all resources. Our whole delivery is self-contained and undertaken by one of our highly qualified educators.

Life Education gives teachers the rare opportunity to observe their class engaging in a different learning environment with one of our educators, free from the need to prepare or deliver the content themselves.

 

“Amazing interactive approach in teaching the children about personal, social, emotional needs and wellbeing. Wonderful attitudes delivering the workshop to the children, made it fun and engaging.”

(East Midlands Primary Teacher)

“Well presented and very educational. Workshop was interactive, involved the children and encouraged them to chat about the topic. Everything was explained at a level that they could understand. Children’s attention was held throughout and they left more knowledgeable about the topics covered.”

Before the visit takes place we work closely with your school. We offer a staff presentation, organise the time table of programmes that best suits your school and offer optional follow-up resources, all of which ensure our work is embedded into PSHE planning. We take care of all logistical aspects of the visit from delivering, siting and setting up the Life Space, through to providing access for children or parents with disabilities.

 

“The workshops encompassed a vast range of different subject areas, life skills and information. I believe this will have a great impact on the children’s learning, relationships and interactions with others.”

(East Midlands Primary Teacher)

 

“Holistically it is a very empowering and enabling experience for the children. For many years now, I have been teaching from SCARF and have been present in the sessions delivered by Coram professionals. It is a wonderful resource to which we have access. All children deserve access to this standard of PSHE.”
