Friends, Relationships & Community

We understand the importance that students have opportunities to spend time with their peers inside and outside of school.

Students need to be supported to develop and maintain friendships and relationships. They also need the skills to access their local, and potentially, wider community and feel safe and confident when doing so. 

To support students to learn these skills and gain exposure to be confident in these areas our Friends, Relationships and Community offer includes exploration of subjects such as:

  • Leisure, pastimes and hobbies
  • Understanding of and use of community facilities
  • Safety on the street
  • Good citizenship
  • Exploration of other communities
  • Shopping
  • Risking on purpose

This is built into our Preparation for Adulthood Curriculum that is run from EYFS through to Post 16.
