Citizenship

Citizenship

Citizenship can best be described as a basic, but academic social science/humanities subject and combines the study of civics, society, law, politics, economics and can include elements of sociology. 
PSHEE stands for personal, social, health and economic education and consists of personal wellbeing and financial capability themes.

At the Anglo European School we deliver Citizenship through a combination of:

Discrete provision with separate curriculum time, whole school, year group and class suspended timetabled activities with outside speakers and agencies, cross curricular projects with several departments, opportunities for active citizenship in participation in school and wider community activities.  The Citizenship Department includes provision for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education.  The Department also works closely with our colleagues in Careers and Enterprise Education.

The sum of these experiences leads to the Diplome du Citoyen, awarded at pass, pass with credit, merit and distinction at the end of each Key Stage. Passing the diploma at the end of Key Stage 4 is essential to matriculate into the 6th form.

The Citizenship Department is staffed by a team of well-qualified and specialist teachers and a number of dedicated teachers who teach Citizenship in addition to their main subject through choice.

The team is led and managed by the Head of Department, Mr Hills. The Head of Department has overall responsibility for all key stages and for the vision and ethos of the department, for curriculum development and staff development needs.
