RESPECT is a combination of Religious Education, Personal, Social & Health Education and Citizenship. The name was selected to reflect, not only the content of the subject, but also the main aim – Teaching respect for myself and other people. Although each of the curriculum areas within RESPECT has its own distinct aims, objectives and subject content, it is our belief that these areas can and do complement each other and provide a well balanced education for all our pupils.

Religious Education

The subject of Religious Education attracts strong feelings, commitment and sometimes controversy. School life provides a secure environment in which students can develop their knowledge and understanding of the observable and deeper aspects of religion. They are challenged to think about and share their own beliefs and values as well as to appreciate the insights of others whom they will meet and work with.

PSHE & Citizenship

Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship are acknowledged as being an essential part of the school curriculum. The RESPECT curriculum interprets personal and social development as

  • Developing their confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities
  • Preparing to play an active role as citizens
  • Developing a healthy safer lifestyle
  • Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people

Citizenship helps pupils to understand and practise:

  • Social and moral responsibility
  • Community involvement
  • Political literacy
