Humanities/Citizenship Curriculum

Humanities Curriculum

 

The Humanities department equips its pupils with the necessary attributes to take an active role in the shaping of their own future and that of the wider community. We believe in a positive outlook and a bright future.

Humanities offers pupils the opportunity to consider their own roles, values and attitudes in relation to the themes and issues being studied and the roles, values and attitudes of others in a diverse and ever changing society.

The main aim of the curriculum is process rather than content and the intention is to develop within the pupils the ability to think for themselves and to develop into successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

In an age of new technologies, literacy is no longer defined as just the ability to read and write, but also the ability to access, create, and send information and data. The Humanities department aims to complement these skills by encouraging pupils to practise the necessary expertise which will allow them to engage themselves fully in progressing towards the necessary accredited qualifications and onto a successful career.

Through the Humanities subjects such as History. Geography, Religious Education and PSHE the department also promotes the development of social skills such as good communication, understanding and empathy. It is our goal that every pupil will develop in these areas and so, not only find their place in society but also make a positive impact upon it.

The pupils are taught in a nurturing environment with each pupil being provided with differentiated and engaging work. The staff are motivated to provide the best teaching environment by providing for the learning needs of every individual. The work provided and the teaching styles adopted ensure each pupil gets the best learning experience.
