What is Learning for Life?
Our Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E) together with our Relationships and Sex Education (R.S.E), enables our children to become healthy, independent, aspirational and responsible members of a diverse and ever-changing society.
At Mapplewells we teach these aspects of the curriculum as Learning for Life.
We strive to help our pupils understand how they are developing personally and socially, and support them to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
An important part of Learning for Life is the ability to discuss and debate issues with clarity, and listen to peoples points of view, whilst understanding that you do not have to agree with them but recognise their point of view.
We strive to provide our pupils with opportunities to learn about their rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.
Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
We aim to have a positive impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for all pupils.
Our ultimate aim is for every single child who leaves Mapplewells to become the very best that they can be and to ensure that disadvantage does not hold any child back.
