Healthy Living

Healthy Living is a bespoke course unique to Southfield School. 

The course aims to establish and sustain positive behaviours when it comes to the health and well-being of our students, both during their time at Southfield and beyond. The course is underpinned by three distinct themes; Social Me, Physical Me and Thinking Me which link all aspects of the course. Whilst developing student understanding of these themes, we aim to to ensure all students apply the expected approach to learning and values of the school on a daily basis. 

The course combines a number of traditional disciplines in Year 7 and 8 to connect the curriculum and at the same time reduce the number of staff that students encounter through their timetables, in doing so we hope to build relationships and ease the transitional experience from Year 6 to KS3 and beyond.  The social, physical and cognitive well-being of our students is our priority from the moment they enter the school.
