At Tudor Grange Redditch we believe high-quality citizenship education helps to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society. In particular, citizenship education should foster pupils’ keen awareness and understanding of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. Teachers will equip pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. We will also prepare pupils to take their place in society as responsible citizens, manage their money well and make sound financial decisions.
The Four Pillars
Students will be taught the three core skills of Citizenship: to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. These skills are crucial for students to be able to fully understand the world around them and to be able to make informed judgements and form opinions on issues they are exposed to on the news and across social media.
There is a particular focus on tolerance, respect, empathy and responsibility. We feel that these values will equip students with the necessary tools to be upstanding members of their local communities.
Students will be exposed to a variety of differing viewpoints throughout their time studying Citizenship. We will also endeavour to give students the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament as part of their studies, whether this be in person or through virtual tours.
Through studying Citizenship, students will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically. This will allow students to develop informed opinions and be confident in sharing those opinions with their peers.
