Citizenship is a subject that is integral to our school curriculum and school values. It aims to develop pupils’ awareness of local, national and global issues.
It aims to ensure that all of our pupils become active participants in their communities and in democracy on a larger scale, and understand the impact that individuals and groups can have in making a better society for us all. It ensures that pupils leave school with an understanding of the world beyond their own experience, understanding fundamental British values and ready to participate in democratic processes.
Citizenship Studies is offered as a full course GCSE at KS4 and the pupils are required to understand life in modern Britain, politics and participation in the UK and key concepts around rights and responsibilities in society.
All pupils must complete their own ‘Active Citizenship’ project and understand recent political and social campaigns for change. Pupils investigate a wide range of topical issues and consider their impact, locally, nationally and globally. Pupils are expected to immerse themselves in these topics and gain an in-depth understanding of politics, conflict, rights and how to make a difference to society.
