The Citizenship statements for Key Stages 1 and 2 have been produced by Isle
of Man Department of Education and Children professionals working in a variety
of roles. The working party has looked closely at citizenship provision in
England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. One of the priorities of the working party
was to reflect current and best practice within schools.
The Department of Education and Children wants to support and encourage
schools to develop a Citizenship programme. This underpins the requirements
placed on all schools by the Education Act 2001 to promote the personal
spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and contribute to their
education in the field of citizenship.
The emphasis on promoting positive citizens, within school and the wider
community augments the 6Rs priorities and reflects much good practice that is
happening currently in schools.
The Department of Education and Children would like to acknowledge the work
of Jonathan Ayres, Jo Callister, Carys Lloyd, Geoff Moorcroft and Susan
Rossouw who all gave up their precious time to contribute to these statements.
