The intent of our Citizenship Curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximize the outcomes for every child so that they know more and understand more. As a result of this, they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who know how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
Our curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world, which has been adapted from that of the program of ‘Christopher Winter Project’. This includes opportunities to link British Values, SMSC and schools’ key skills into the curriculum. Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use across all areas of the curriculum. All subjects make a links to PSHE, British Values, SMSC, and the language is consistently used by staff throughout school. As a school we keep parents informed of the content of the RSE program.
We encourage our children to enjoy and value the curriculum we deliver. The aim for the children to demonstrate and apply British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual Respect, Rule of Law and Liberty. The children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school, attendance will be in-line with national and behavior will be good throughout school. The quality of children’s’ learning is evident in and around school as well as in their books, where they can refer to it. Formative assessment is ongoing throughout each lesson. It judges progress and enables flexible adaptations to teaching and planning.
