All KS3 students have one Citizenship lesson per fortnight. Education in citizenship equips young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life. Citizenship encourages them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate. It brings together personal, social and health education, work-related learning, careers, enterprise, and financial capability and includes Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) and Drugs education.
Citizenship lessons are taught by a variety of St Katherine’s teaching staff. They are coordinated by Ms Ferguson and also include some sessions lead by specialists from the community.
