Ms Naomi Richards - Citizenship and PSHEE coordinator
Citizenship education gives students the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in society at local, national and international levels. It helps students become informed, thoughtful and responsible citizens who are aware of their duties and rights. Citizenship encourages respect for different national, religious and ethnic identities and aims to develop the ability of students to reflect on issues and take part in discussions.
Whole school Citizenship
Citizenship links are made clear within all taught subjects at Preston Manor allowing students to explore citizenship related issues across a range of subject areas.
In KS3 Students participate in weekly Thursday Morning registration sessions and one hour lessons in KS3 during the summer term. At the end of KS3 Pupils are awarded a level in citizenship education based on their participation and knowledge.
At KS4 students participate in weekly Thursday Morning registration sessions. Students also take part in regular drop down days which look at particular issues relating to themselves and the wider community and world that they live in.
Extra Curricular Opportunities
Students are offered the opportunity to join extra -curricular groups and projects when they are available. This includes things like Environmental Club, The Mock Trials, Giving Nation Challenge, ENVISION.
