Citizenship, personalisation and Every Child Matters – an argument for synthesis.

By Neil Denby


This short paper looks at the current position of Citizenship teaching in terms of its statutory position and the different ways in which it can be delivered within this model. It then uses observational examples from three secondary schools to consider the different ways in which the subject is perceived. Finally, it considers how citizenship teaching might be affected by personalisation and Every Child Matters legislation
