Citizenship Overview of KS3

Throughout KS3, the core principles of citizenship are mapped and monitored across all other areas of the school. In addition to support this, all KS3 students engage in regular Learn2 lessons, many of which have a citizenship focus. The ‘Learn 2 Be an Active Citizen’ programme at KS3 covers the following;

  • ‘The development of the political system of democratic government in the United
    Kingdom, including the roles of citizens, Parliament and the Monarch.’
  • ‘The precious liberties enjoyed by the citizens of the United Kingdom.’
  • ‘The operation of parliament, including voting and elections, and the role of political
  • ‘The nature of rules and laws and the justice system, including the role of the police and
    the operation of courts and tribunals.’
  • ‘the roles played by public institutions and voluntary groups in society, and the ways in
    which citizens work together to improve their communities, including opportunities to
    participate in school-based activities.’

The programme explores issues concerning democracy, being a ‘British Citizen’, human rights, cultural and religious expectations, the constitution, the House of Commons, the House of Lords, the role of the monarch, legislation, law making, elections, voting and political pressure groups.
