A new life skills room at LVS Oxford is providing a lifelike setting for learners to develop the skills that will help them go on to lead independent futures.
Learners are able to practice cleaning, bed making and vacumming amongst other activities - things others may take for granted but a vital accumulation of skills for learners as they prepare for life beyond the school.
Independent living is one of LVS Oxford's key outcomes in developing learners and providing them with the tools and skills for a successful future. It sits alongside social and emotional wellbeing, academic progress and destinations beyond the school as a focus of attention to ensure our unique education provides all the support possible and allow our young learners to flourish.
The Life Skills curriculum at Oxford LVS provides an opportunity for the learners to take part in independent living activities enabling them to become more autonomous and personally effective in managing and dealing with the demands of daily life. The LVS Oxford Life skills curriculum enables all young people to become:
• successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
• confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
• responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
We aim to provide them with a 'tool box for life' - a variety of skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them in to the future.
