Crispin School

Curriculum for Life

Somerset Road Safety deliver a road awareness course

At Crispin we use the term Curriculum For Life instead of PSHE as the subject ensures that students leave Crispin as knowledgeable, inquisitive, and compassionate citizens for 21st century society. The Crispin Curriculum is coherent, inclusive and challenging and it allows students to maximise their learning in the fullest sense by deepening knowledge and understanding, broadening perspectives and ensuring strong student outcomes. We cover a wide range of topics which are relevant to the students’ ages and experiences. The topics to be delivered are statutory and set out by the Government.  

Our Pillars of the Curriculum are: 

  • Broadening Perspectives 
  • Communication 
  • Community 
  • Relationships 
  • Health and Wellbeing 
  • Society and Culture 
  • Employability (Careers, Enterprise, Industry and Guidance) 

Curriculum For Life is delivered to every year group for one hour a fortnight by a range of teachers, each bringing their own personal qualities and attributes to the subject. Our lessons include a variety of resources, video, quizzes, debates, internet based enquiry, scenario cards and, wherever possible, we invite outside speakers into the classroom to work on particular facets of the scheme of learning.  

We aim to support the students’ physical and mental health and well being, develop their non-cognitive skills, and support safeguarding. 

Due to the changing nature of children's lives, this is never set in stone and can change from one term to the next.
