Curriculum for

 

Life

At Crawshaw Academy, Curriculum for Life (CfL) lessons are delivered with the aim of addressing current issues affecting the lives of young people such as an understanding of consent and healthy relationships; substance misuse education; how to manage their mental health; the impact of social media and the importance of RSE.

 

Students in years 7, 8 and 11 receive 1 hour CfL per fortnight delivered as a form group by their form tutor.

Students in years 9 and 10 will receive 1 hour per fortnight core CfL delivered by their form tutor in their form, and an additional hour per fortnight taught as a mixed year group class.

 

As a secondary academy school, we must provide Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) to all students as per section 34 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017.  The new statutory RSE curriculum will be compulsory from September 2020 and at Crawshaw we have been delivering RSE in line with statutory guidance.

 

The aim of relationships and sex education (RSE) at Crawshaw Academy is to:

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussion can take place.
  • Prepare students for puberty and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene.
  • Help students develop feelings of self respect, empathy and confidence.
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships.
  • Teach students the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies.

 

RSE is taught within Curriculum for Life (CfL) lessons. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum, and other aspects are included in Ethics, Philosophy and Religion (EPR). Online and media safety is taught within the ICT curriculum. There may however also be crossover within the CfL curriculum to give context to a topic, recap prior knowledge or build on existing skills, knowledge and understanding.  

 

Further details of topics covered can be found in the Learning Journey for each year group.
