Citizenship and PSHE


Education for citizenship equips young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life. Citizenship encourages them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate. Pupils learn about their rights, responsibilities, duties and freedoms and about laws, justice and democracy. They learn to take part in decision-making and different forms of action. They play an active role in the life of their schools, neighbourhoods, communities and wider society as active and global citizens

PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education)

PSHE brings together personal, social and health education, work-related learning, careers, enterprise, and financial capability. There are two new non-statutory programmes of study at Key Stages 3 and 4: personal wellbeing, and economic wellbeing and financial capability. The programmes of study are based on the 'Every Child Matters' outcomes and builds on the existing frameworks and guidelines in these areas.
