Pedagogy and practice
We encourage teaching and learning that is rigorous and critical.
We promote forms of citizenship education that are grounded in sound factual information, present intellectual challenges and are accessible to a wide range of learners.
Since 1 July 2015, schools in England have a legal duty to prevent pupils from becoming radicalised. The Department for Education recommends using the citizenship curriculum.
