THE NEVILLE LOVETT COMMUNITY SCHOOL

CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION POLICY At Neville Lovett we believe that Citizenship gives pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in society at local, national and international levels. It helps them to become informed, thoughtful and responsible citizens who are aware of their duties and rights. It promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, making them more self-confident and responsible both in and beyond the classroom. It encourages pupils to play a helpful part in the life of the school, neighbourhood, community and the wider world. It also teaches them about our economy and democratic institutions and values; encourages respect for different national, religious and ethnic identities; and develop pupils’ ability to reflect on issues and take part in decisions. The national curriculum for Citizenship is delivered predominately through taught P.S.H.C.E. periods on the timetable by specialist staff. Schemes of work are available in the Citizenship office. The manner of deliver and precise materials used has been carefully chosen to reflect our pupils’ needs and interests. Outside agencies are regularly used in the preparation and delivery of the subject to enable pupils to play an active role in the local communities. It is recognised that many aspects of the school community e.g. other curriculum areas support and enhance the work undertaken in P.S.H.C.E. lessons. Pupils are assessed by themselves, their peers and the teaching staff and staff reports on their performance throughout the year in line with school policy.
