The Citizenship & Values curriculum will be assessed through PixL Edge, a framework for schools to develop and accredit in students those personal attributes essential for employability, and the Oldham Pledge Passport to Success. The curriculum will focus on five key attributes; Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.
Through the provision the students will be encouraged to:
- develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
- distinguish right from wrong and respect civil and criminal law of England
- accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and society more widely
- further tolerance and trust between different cultural traditions by enabling them to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and others cultures
- respect democracy and support participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which law is made and applied in England.
Independent Advice and Guidance (IAG)
IAG ensures students get the support they need to make well informed, realistic decisions about their future through careers education, information, advice and guidance.
The careers programme is designed to meet the needs of learners at The Radclyffe School. Activities are differentiated and personalised to ensure progression in their career learning and development, and to strengthen their motivation, aspirations and attainment at school.
Learners are entitled to information, advice and guidance, which meets professional standards of practice, is delivered by trained staff and is person-centred, impartial and confidential.
Activities will be embedded in the curriculum and based on a partnership with learners and their parents/carers. The programme will raise aspirations, challenge stereotyping and promote equality and diversity.
