Living in the Wider World Curriculum Overview
Student’s rights are explained to them, both in terms of their human rights and their rights as consumers of goods both physical and digital. This strand also encourages students to begin to take responsibility for their own safety when travelling, working or spending time with friends as well as how to avoid illegal and illicit activities. In a world where interactions increasingly occur online, the E-Safety strand of our PD programme aims to provide students with the tools to explore the online world safely and productively. An awareness of some dangers present on the internet such as online radicalisation, fake news and other harmful online content is provided and online rights and responsibilities are discussed. All strands of the PD programme discuss the use of proper and safe use of technology where applicable; this strand goes into a greater level of detail for some of these topics.
