St Gabriel’s RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, governors and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. For more information please see our safeguarding policy which can be found under Key Information > Policies > Safeguarding Policy.
As part of a new initiative for the children in order to help them teach skills for the future and prepare them for lifelong learning, we have incorporated ‘Learning for Life’ groups into our curriculum.
Each half term the children choose a ‘Learning for Life’ activity that they would like to take part in. These can change depending on the skills and interests of the teachers. The groups at the moment are:
Engineering: planning and constructing models with a range of media.
Horticulture: creating a prayer garden in school grounds.
Art: sketch skills for display around school.
Sewing: creating projects to take home (pillows).
Cooking: a range of culinary skills used weekly.
Film club: creating a film for the website.
Keep Fit: a range of sporting activities.
Reflection: behaviour from the week is reflected upon and how their actions can be improved.
The foci of groups will change as the children choose different groups.
