During primary, Life Skills education offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences which reflect pupils’ increasing
independence and physical and social awareness, as they move through the primary phase. It builds on the skills that pupils started to acquire during the
Early Years Foundation stage (Infantil) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online.
Life Skills education helps pupils to manage the physical and emotional changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities.
