iMatter As A Citizenship Student

Year 7

I will participate in a Local Government Project, where I will be required to study how communities and local government work. I will understand rights, responsibilities & the importance of looking after the environment. Whilst considering my own role in these, I will question if I am a good or active citizen, and how I can make a difference. I will actively develop my views on local issues and create an action plan for change as part of a group.

Year 8

I will learn about the 'Law and the Justice System' of the UK. I will consider how the law affects young people, youth crime and the role of the Police and authorities. I will investigate what happens to youth offenders and look at life in a young offender’s institution. I will be given the opportunity to compare this to the adult penal system and consider different types of punishment for crime in the UK.

Year 9

I will study Life in Modern Britain: Principles and values in British society; British Identity; The Media and free press; The UK’s role in key international organisations and making a difference in our communities. I will also investigate UK traditions and multiculturalism and I will be given the opportunity to consider different representations of the views of others, whilst reflecting on my own choices and the impact of civil actions on society today.

Year 10

I will investigate active citizenship and the role of politics and participation in the UK, with a study on the individuals' rights and responsibilities in modern life and the values and principles underpinning British identity. I will investigate the study of religion: beliefs, teachings and practices from a range of major world religions, exploring a variety of global themes such as 'the existence of God and revelation, to 'religion, peace and conflict.

Year 11

I will undertake a research project: 'How do others govern themselves' and 'Bringing about political change'; learning how to become an MP and get involved in politics. I will understand how to plan an event, using information from my own research. I will be given the opportunity to compare different political systems and consider the impact of political actions. I will investigate complex issues, such as freedoms, democracy and rights and the application of UK values.

INTENT

iMatter as a Citizenship student because I will become a thoughtful and active citizen who will engage intelligently and enthusiastically with public life. I will gain a knowledge of democracy, government and law and develop the ability to create sustained, well balanced arguments. I will develop an inquiring mind in relation to how religion, philosophy and ethics form the basis of our culture and develop the skills that ensure I become an active and engaged citizen.
