Human and Life Skills

The purpose of the Human and Life Skills’ curriculum at Harris Academy Wimbledon is to provide all our students regardless of gender, sexuality, disability, or religion, with a ‘curriculum for life’. Our Human and Life Skills curriculum will develop essential skills and attributes – such as self-esteem, managing risk and resisting peer pressure – which students can apply to a range of areas; and which address related factors such as alcohol and drugs, media literacy, online safety, gender equality and emotional wellbeing. By developing these essential skills and attributes we are equipping our students with the tools to allow them to stay safe both in the real and online worlds they will come across. Equally, our intention is to prepare students for life in our ever-changing world by empowering them with the knowledge to stay both physically and mentally healthy and therefore function effectively within society. Alongside this, to be effective citizens who can make a positive contribution, it is vital for students to understand their rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be part of a diverse society.  

Relationship and Sex Education is a core part of the “Human and Life Skills Curriculum’ and when students leave us, we want them to understand what being in a healthy relationship entails and to respect the fact that relationships can take many different forms. For further information on our RSE provision, please see our RSE Policy (September 2019). 

The Key Stage 3 Human Life Skills curriculum must:

  • develop students’ knowledge of the political system of democratic government in the United Kingdom, including the roles of citizens, Parliament and the monarch
  • develop students’ understanding of the precious liberties enjoyed by the citizens of the United Kingdom
  • develop students’ knowledge of the nature of rules and laws and the justice system, including the role of the police and the operation of courts and tribunals
  • develop students’ understanding of the functions and uses of money, the importance and practice of budgeting, and managing risk.
  • enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence; whilst allowing them to distinguish right from wrong
  • encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
  • enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England;
  • promote tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures;

The Key Stage 4 Human Life Skills curriculum must:

  • develop students’ knowledge of parliamentary democracy and the key elements of the constitution of the United Kingdom, including the power of government, the role of citizens and Parliament in holding those in power to account, and the different roles of the executive, legislature and judiciary and a free press
  • develop students’ knowledge of the different electoral systems used in and beyond the United Kingdom and actions citizens can take in democratic and electoral processes to influence decisions locally, nationally and beyond
  • develop students’ knowledge of other systems and forms of government, both democratic and non-democratic, beyond the United Kingdom
  • develop students’ knowledge of human rights and international law
  • develop knowledge of the legal system in the UK, different sources of law and how the law helps society deal with complex problems
  • explore diverse national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the United Kingdom and the need for mutual respect and understanding
  • develop students’ knowledge of income and expenditure, credit and debt, insurance, savings and pensions, financial products and services, and how public money is raised and spent
