Course Information

The CR curriculum aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies to live healthy, safe, responsible lives. We encourage our students to be enterprising and make positive learning and career choices; alongside achieving economic wellbeing. A key part of our work in CR is based on providing opportunities for students to reflect on, and clarify, their own values and attitudes concerning a variety of issues. The curriculum contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem as well as recognising their own strengths and qualities that make them unique. Students identify risk taking behaviour, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables them to recognise, accept and shape their identities, understanding difference and change. Students are encouraged to communicate constructively in a variety of settings, working independently and as part of a team to form and maintain good relationships; developing essential skills for future employability and life.
