C4L – Confidence 4 Life
The PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, and Education) programme at Monmouth School for Girls has been rebranded by students – now called Confidence for Life (C4L) – and also incorporates the charity programme across the school.
Identified as ‘sector-leading’ by ESTYN, the school’s C4L programme incorporates an innovative and exciting programme of workshops and activities throughout the year to support our students.
Francesca, C4L Prefect and 6th Form student, explains: “The C4L programme sets us up well for life beyond school by providing essential information and first-hand experiences to open our minds and help us tackle any roadblocks ahead. As a student, it is sometimes very easy to forget about life outside of academia so the C4L programme is a truly essential part of a Monmouth education.
“Pupils’ suggestions and feedback are really valued and listened to, which makes for a thoughtfully constructed programme that is actually relevant and engaging to students, especially since the issues which are important to young people are changing rapidly every year, now more than ever.”
The key aims of C4L are:
- to improve student wellbeing through student engagement
- to enable students to explore attitudes and values in a safe and supportive environment
- to help develop knowledge, skills and understanding to empower students to make healthy, safe, lifestyle choices
- to develop positive relationships and to respect the difference and diversity in people
- to shape and support robust, holistically self-confident individuals who will aim high in every aspect of life.
Numerous external speakers, workshops and teacher-led sessions are provided throughout the year to support these aims.
Our students are also an incredibly caring group of young people and through their charitable efforts, raised funds of over £14,000 in the last year for a whole host of charities.
At Monmouth School for Girls, we ensure the core aims of the C4L programme are met and work tirelessly to ensure they are delivered and understood as part of the school experience, with the support of students, staff and parents.
