#WeAreLongfield

We aspire to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, students need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Students can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts.

Our We Are Longfield Curriculum personalises the components of PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education, Citizenship, Personal Development, assemblies and key dates to create one cohesive package for our pupils at Longfield Academy.
