Citizenship- Key Stage 3

Citizenship is about young people and their communities: Budmouth College, Weymouth & Portland (local), the UK (national) and the wider world (global). It's about understanding how to take action to make a positive impact in the community. Citizenship enables young people to develop the skills of researching, debating, considering others' opinions and standing up for issues and beliefs. Students will learn about topics such as how our parliament works, how to lobby our representatives, and understanding world issues.

PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) informs young people about different topics to allow them to make safe decisions for themselves. Topics covered include keeping safe online, sex and relationship education, drugs (including smoking and alcohol) and money issues. There is no formal assessment, but students are expected to develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes towards the different topics.

At Key Stage 3, students have one lesson a week of either Citizenship/PSHEE.
