Citizenship & PSHCE

Personal Development Curriculum

The Personal Development Curriculum is comprised of 8 strands

  • Personal Development
  • Citizenship
  • Religious Education
  • PHSE
  • SMSC
  • Outdoor Learning
  • Careers EIAG
  • Enrichment Programme

Rationale

Promoting the holistic development of learners at Caedmon College Whitby, through a structured and multi-faceted personal development curriculum, will provide students the opportunity to explore issues, develop learning capabilities, give them a sense of place in the community and develop a growth mindset to be the best they can be; especially through the College values of excellence, friendship and respect. The College has identified three significant factors which affect learning and which are important in the context of student development:

  • the isolation of the area
  • a lack of aspiration due to the difficulties of engaging in the wider world
  • the ethnic and cultural homogeneity of the area.

Personal Development at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 helps students’ lead confident, healthy and responsible lives as individuals and members of society. Through work in curriculum time and a wide range of activities across and beyond the curriculum, students gain practical knowledge, understanding and skills to help them live healthily and deal with spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues they face as they approach adulthood and address the three factors highlighted.

Personal Development gives opportunities to reflect on their experiences and how they are developing. It helps them understand and manage responsibly a wider range of relationships as they mature and show respect for the diversity of and differences between people. It also develops students well-being and self-esteem, encouraging belief in the ability to succeed and enabling them to take responsibility for their learning and future choice of courses and career. Personal Development at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 build on students’ own experiences and those opportunities that arise.

At Caedmon College Whitby, the introduction of a structured Outdoor Learning programme allows students to take real risks, work within communities, develop resilience and incorporate a problem solving approach to their learning.

Teaching Strategies
The delivery of Personal Development complies with the requirement to deliver the non-statutory guidance, statutory national curriculum and government advice in each area respectively. The delivery of each element is a fluid process. Teaching makes use of instruction, exposition, explanation and demonstration as appropriate. Opportunities are made available for the students to work individually, in groups and as a whole class. Teachers draw upon their own subject knowledge and experience, as it is recognised that entitlement vary from year to year and will encompass contemporary issues. Where appropriate, the strands within Personal Development are augmented by: educational visits (local, nationally and internationally), visits by representatives of relevant organisations and other individuals.
Enrichment is linked to other subject areas providing relevance or case studies to compliment the core knowledge and understanding taught by the department. Specialist enrichment days will either launch, enhance or land tutorial programmes.
At all times teaching, will both promote and be consistent with the College policies on behaviour, bullying, equal opportunities and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and British Values.
An overview plan for Personal Development is renewed annually.

Leadership and Management
The Personal Development curriculum will be the responsibility of the Senior Teacher Outdoor Learning and Personal Development. In undertaking both the delivery of this curriculum and its development, the Senior Teacher regularly monitors the provision of Personal Development and the work of students. The College will use the HRBQ to identify areas for inclusion in the taught curriculum.

Resources
The schemes of work contain topic, aims, learning outcomes and evidence of experience as well as suggestions for resources, starters and plenaries. They have been created to allow the use of up to date case study materials without the schemes of work becoming too dated too quickly.

Assessment, Recording and Reporting
Assessment of students work will be undertaken on a regular basis and will accord with the schools’ assessment, recording and reporting policy. Students will receive regular feedback on the assessment of their work and will be informed of strengths in their work, areas for development and targets for improvement. Students will be encouraged to critically assess and reflect on their own work.

Citizenship
Citizenship gives students the knowledge, skills and understanding to play a role in society at local, national and international levels. It helps them to become informed, thoughtful and responsible citizens who are aware of their duties and rights. It promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, making them more self-confident and responsible both in and beyond the classroom. It encourages students to play a helpful part in the life of the College, neighbourhood, community and the wider world. It also teaches them about the economy and democratic institutions and values; encourages respect for different national, religious and ethnic identities; and develops students’ ability to reflect on issues and take part in discussions. Within Key Stage 3 Citizenship incorporates elements of the PSHE curriculum that requires additional depth not explored during tutorial time.

CEIAG
CEIAG delivery within the College is through a combination of discrete time for careers education which may be part of tutorials or a wider personal development programme, through subjects (enabling students to understand progression routes and career opportunities from subjects as well as opportunities to understand and develop subject-related employability skills), through ‘enrichment’ activities such as work experience, enterprise activities, careers fairs, workplace visits and talks, or fully taught specific sessions delivered by the CEIAG team. Drop in sessions are also offered on both the Normanby and Scoresby sites during lunchtimes.

Outdoor Learning at CCW

Through the Personal Development Curriculum we will develop a culture across the College that promotes the Whole learning community to be the best it can be.
