Citizenship

Curriculum

The Citizenship and PSHE curriculum is delivered through tutor time.  The Citizenship department plans all the units and tutors deliver these.  Each half term a new theme is introduced which the whole school studies but a different aspect is examined.

Over the five years at The Priory School students will study a variety of political issues including the importance of voting, the different types of democratic voting, the EU and the different political parties.  They will also examine issues surrounding law and the environment as well as looking at PSHE issues including Drugs Education and Diversity.

Students are taught about their rights and the responsibilities that this brings. The aim of the Citizenship programme is to equip our students with the life skills that they need to help them achieve in the future.
