PSHE & Citizenship

PSHE & CITIZENSHIP at Rye Hills School

At Rye Hills School we take a whole school approach to Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship.  This reflects the needs of the pupils, the ethos of the school and the broad aims of the National Curriculum.

CITIZENSHIP CONTENT

At Key stage 3 we aim to develop pupils’ understanding of democracy, government and the rights and responsibilities of citizens. Pupils use and apply their knowledge and understanding whilst developing skills to research and interrogate evidence, debate and evaluate viewpoints, present reasoned arguments and take informed action.

Pupils are taught about:

·         the development of the political system of democratic government in the United Kingdom, including the roles of citizens, Parliament and the monarch the operation of Parliament, including voting and elections, and the role of political parties

·         the precious liberties enjoyed by the citizens of the United Kingdom

·         the nature of rules and laws and the justice system, including the role of the police and the operation of courts and tribunals

·         the roles played by public institutions and voluntary groups in society, and the ways in which citizens work together to improve their communities, including opportunities to participate in school-based activities

·          the functions and uses of money, the importance and practice of budgeting, and managing risk.

At Key stage 4 teaching builds on the key stage 3 programme of study to deepen pupils’ understanding of democracy, government and the rights and responsibilities of citizens. Pupils develop their skills to be able to use a range of research strategies, weigh up evidence, make persuasive arguments and substantiate their conclusions. They will experience and evaluate different ways that citizens can act together to solve problems and contribute to society.

Pupils are taught about:

·         parliamentary democracy and the key elements of the constitution of the United Kingdom, including the power of government, the role of citizens and Parliament in holding those in power to account, and the different roles of the executive, legislature and judiciary and a free press

·         the different electoral systems used in and beyond the United Kingdom and actions citizens can take in democratic and electoral processes to influence decisions locally, nationally and beyond

·         other systems and forms of government, both democratic and non-democratic, beyond the United Kingdom

·         local, regional and international governance and the United Kingdom’s relations with the rest of Europe, the Commonwealth, the United Nations and the wider world

·         human rights and international law

·         the legal system in the UK, different sources of law and how the law helps society deal with complex problems

·         diverse national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the United Kingdom and the need for mutual respect and understanding

·         the different ways in which a citizen can contribute to the improvement of his or her community, to include the opportunity to participate actively in community volunteering, as well as other forms of responsible activity

·         income and expenditure, credit and debt, insurance, savings and pensions, financial products and services, and how public money is raised and spent.  

PSHE CONTENT

The programme of study covers both Key Stage 3 and 4 and is based on three core themes within which there will be broad overlap with the Citizenship content:  

1. Health and Wellbeing

2. Relationships

3. Living in the Wider World

At Key Stage 3, PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that learners are experiencing, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Pupils are encouraged to manage diverse relationships and the increasing influence of peers and the media.  PSHE education allows them to be more confident in addressing the challenges of effective learning and making a full and active contribution to society.  

At Key Stage 4, pupils extend and rehearse the skills, further explore attitudes and values, and deepen knowledge and understanding acquired during Key Stage 3. PSHE education reflects the fact that learners are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking on greater responsibility for themselves and others.

During the PSHE & CITIZENSHIP drop down mornings students learn about: enterprise and an understanding of economic wellbeing, sex and relationship education, British values, global issues and diversity, healthy lifestyle choices and drug and alcohol awareness.

2. Pastoral programme      

Through form-tutor led activities during registration, assessing learning and progress, mentoring, target setting and reporting every term, PSHE & Citizenship development is promoted and monitored.

3. Assemblies        

These are delivered by members of staff and external agencies/ guest speakers during the year and promote and/or address a wide range of PSHE and Citizenship themes, British values and the Christian ethos of the school.

4. National Curriculum lessons        

Within subjects and colleges many aspects of PHSE & Citizenship are delivered (see tables below).

5.Extra-curricular activities

Through a growing range of clubs, visits and wider opportunities, School Council and debating events, pupils have the chance to develop personally, socially, emotionally and culturally.

6. Wider community                                  

Our links with the immediate and global community enable students to reflect on their place in the world and appreciate the importance of relationships and an understanding, acceptance and respect of other cultures and beliefs.

7. KS4 – Specialist Careers and Post 16 Events

Y11 Parents’ Information Evening and Y9-Y11 Careers fair – parents and students are invited along to these events to get an opportunity to prepare for adult life, post 16 employment and education through a varied input from further education, higher education, local industry and other guest speakers and interviewers.
