The Citizenship and PSHE curriculum at Salford City Academy aims to provide students with knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society. Citizenship and PSHE is taught discreetly within the curriculum timetable one hour per fortnight, however, is complemented through additional workshops, enrichment days and assemblies throughout the year.
The curriculum is designed to support the development of the Academy’s values, alongside British values. Schemes of work have been planned to respond to issues that arise in the school and wider community.
The Citizenship curriculum aims to foster students’ awareness of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. Teaching in Citizenship will equip students with the knowledge and interest to explore political and social issues. Explicit and regular reference to British Values is covered throughout the Citizenship curriculum.
The 2019 Relationship, sex and health education curriculum has been fully implemented into our curriculum design. RSE is taught through PSHE at key stage three but is additionally supported through workshops and assemblies. At key stage four RSE is taught through enrichment days and complimentary workshops. The Curriculum for RSE has been designed to support our students lifelong learning about relationships, emotions, looking after ourselves, different families, sex, sexuality and sexual health. We aim for the students in our school to acquire the appropriate knowledge, develop their skills and form positive beliefs, values and attitudes.
