Throughout the Citizenship curriculum, we want to continuously empower students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make healthy and safe life choices, to develop positive relationships and respect diversity.
We aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and dynamic part in society, democracy, respecting different national, religious and ethnic identities.
We want our students to be responsible and take account of their actions and how it can impact people around them.
The teaching of PSHCE is delivered through various strategies. Aspects of the citizenship curriculum, such as a broad knowledge of the public institutions and services in England and abroad and understanding of different cultures and faiths, will be taught in lessons in school. Pupils will be taught about parliament and how laws are drafted and approved, how the democratic institutions function and the role of media and voluntary bodies, in lessons at Key Stage 3 and Key stage 4.
Other aspects of the citizenship curriculum, such as distinguishing right from wrong; respect for the law; tolerance for, and respect for the rights of others and their cultures and faiths; accepting personal responsibility within their communities; are delivered through teaching within the Islamic education.
Citizenship will be taught up to GCSE level.
