The study of Citizenship aims to put pupils at the heart of everyday debates about society and encourage them to make a positive impact on their local, national and international communities.
Pupils will learn about their rights, roles and responsibilities as a young citizen and will explore many of the issues faced by young people today – both in and outside of the school environment. They will learn about democracy and the rule of law, the English legal system, and gain an understanding of the political landscape and the importance of fundamental British values.
Pupils will also be taught practical life skills, such as how to manage their money effectively, how to budget and save, how to plan for their future careers and harness their entrepreneurial skills, how to foster positive and supportive relationships with others, and how to safeguard their physical and mental health.
The Citizenship curriculum will help pupils to develop the personal, intellectual and social skills they will need to thrive as young citizens in Britain.
