Our Citizenship curriculum is intended to:
- Provide powerful knowledge about our civic society and social world
- Develop a high level of civic literacy, enabling our students to engage in modern British society in a thoughtful, critical and informed way and in doing so fulfil their civic responsibility to engage powerfully with our democracy
- Provide social and cultural literacy, which will enable students to engage fully in British culture, society, literature, and the arts
- Develop a working knowledge of and practical appreciation for the diverse range of groups and cultures present in our school, local and national community
- Instil an understanding of and respect for the fundamental British values of democracy, tolerance, individual liberty and the rule of law
- Enable our students to engage actively and productively in the social, cultural, religious, civic and political life of the United Kingdom as thoughtful and reflective citizens.
Through our Citizenship curriculum, we intend to induct students into the epistemology and skills of social sciences. We seek to develop students’ capacity to:
- Analyse critically the different perspectives, explanations and arguments of others
- Develop reasoned and well-justified lines of argument in a variety of academic contexts
- Apply the principles of empirical research and evidence gathering to different research questions and contexts.
