Global Citizenship at Kellett School is an adaptation of the UK Department for Education’s Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) & Citizenship programmes of study.
In today’s fast paced and evolving society, PSHEE helps students to manage the significant challenges, opportunities and responsibilities they will face growing up. It helps them to build their personal identities, relationships, confidence and self-esteem, make career choices, and understand what influences their decisions including financial ones.
Further, Citizenship equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for effective and democratic participation. It helps students to become informed, critical, active citizens who have the confidence and conviction to work collaboratively, take action and try to make a difference in their communities and the wider world. It equips students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life; encouraging them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate.
We are proud of our high quality and comprehensive Global Citizenship programme which is delivered by a dedicated pastoral team to all Kellett Senior students from Year 7-13 for one hour every week. The Global Citizenship programme is organised into the three literacies below and is regularly adapted to suit the needs of our students and to respond to events that occur in our community and around the world throughout the academic year.
These topics are about helping students to make informed choices about their health and wellbeing, assessing risk, keeping themselves and others safe and developing healthy relationships both online and offline.
These topics are about students understanding the world and society they live in, exploring their rights and responsibilities, articulating their values and opinions and developing the skills required as active citizens.
These topics are about students managing money effectively, learning about the world of work, developing employability skills and exploring educational and career opportunities to support them in making informed choices for their futures.
Further, Digital Literacy is a highly relevant and constantly evolving area of focus, which is woven into all three strands of the curriculum where and when it is most relevant to each year group.
