 Our award is designed by Woolgrove staff to promote the development of skills and knowledge of our pupils. The award promotes and supports the development of “pupil character” through activities and experiences at home and school. The award links with our school Life Skills curriculum, PSED curriculum and the DFE Character Education Framework 2019

The award is designed to work across the school academic year. In the autumn term the focus is LIVE – encouraging pupils to look after themselves and develop healthy routines. In the spring term, the focus is LAUGH – developing positive friendships, self esteem and helping others at home and in the community. In the summer term, the focus is LAUGH – trying new things, being creative or learning a new skill. There are award criteria for each of our school learning pathways: EYFS/Semi Formal 1, Semi Formal 2 and Formal. Each pathway has 15 activities/experiences for live, laugh and learn – making a total of 45 exciting things to do!

Please do not worry if you/your child find it hard to access/complete the activities. Lot's of the activities are based on things which you may already be doing at home e.g. tidying the bedroom! As part of our school curriculum, staff will also be working on providing similar opportunities in school which can also be used as evidence towards the award.
