Home / Curriculum / Subjects / Citizenship/PSHE


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.

PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) informs young people about different topics to allow them to make safe decisions for themselves.
