Citizenship education at HAB plays a key role in creating social cohesion and generating genuine understanding between communities reducing friction, intolerance and social unrest. It is taught both discretely by form tutors, in assemblies and through Theme Days. Citizenship is also woven seamlessly into the curriculum in English, History, Geography and Religious Studies.
At GCSE the study of Citizenship at Harris Academy Bermondsey provides academic knowledge, through which pupils begin to explore and comprehend important things about individuals, communities and society.
The curriculum has been structured to methodically introduce and assure students’ knowledge and understanding in key concepts such as identity, cohesion, politics, and authority, which underpin social and human experiences.
At a time when communities are becoming more diverse, there is an even greater need for a more tolerant society. Therefore, the curriculum forms a rich and board narrative, so that pupils can take necessary action where there is injustice and bias, collaborate with others, and endeavour to search for their own active role within society, while still respecting the opinions of others.
Our GCSE citizenship progression model is available below.
We are currently in a full curriculum review and the full citizenship progression model for all students across years 7-11 will be available shortly.
