Citizenship education helps to provide pupils with knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society. In particular, citizenship education fosters pupils’ awareness and understanding of the world in which they live. We aim to teach throughout Key Stage 3 and 4:
It provides the skills and knowledge to explore key issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. It prepares pupils to take their place in society as responsible citizens.
In a lesson we will use a range of different teaching and learning techniques, ranging from group work to community involvement, individual research to debate, computer based lessons to team building exercises. We aim to make the lessons as “hands on” and as practical as possible.

As part of this programme we teach pupils how to be safe in the world in which they live.
