What is Citizenship Education?

It is a new statutory subject at key stages 3 and 4 (secondary). It is a new curriculum based on active learning and engagement with issues which affect everybody. It offers students the opportunity to develop an understanding of the world around them and their role within it.

A key requirement for Citizenship Education includes students having to take part in a community project.

Through discussion, debate, research, participation, taking responsibility and community action students acquire and develop the skills of enquiry, communication, participation and responsible action.

The Mobile Shed Community Project

In our mobile shed Citizen Project we will enable community groups to raise funds to support their work by hiring our tuck shop shed.
The Project will help the St Christopher's Hospice, Primary Schools, Day Care Centres and Charities in our Communities.
Our Citizen Project team is split into a Finance,
Communications, PR and a Design area. Finally every area has one leader.
We plan to promote the Shed Citizen project with leaflets, Head's Tea Party and
Mail outs.
Furthermore we will finance the project with two different recourses: with the Citizen Project funds and raised money through cooking a lot of cakes at Christmas time.

Our first success was to bye gifts for poor families in Africa with using www.greatgifts.co.uk. We are proud to bought a goat, a sheep, a water hygiene kit and a vaccination for a child in Africa.

The long term benefit of our Citizen Project is raising more money for charities.
