How and when is my child assessed?

The Life Skills Department do not carry out formal assessment as this would be inappropriate due the nature of the topics and skills studied. We mark work completed in books to ensure high levels of engagement and that understanding is taking place.

How to support your child in Life Skills:

We would encourage you to discuss the issues that are raised during lessons. The three main themes we examine are Relationships (including sex education), Health & Wellbeing and Living in the Wider World. These three themes should help to equip the students at Baines with knowledge about their futures, decision making, ability to remain safe in different environments and how to interact with others. We also look at Careers within Life Skills and the students partake in an enterprise project once a year in KS3.
