Covering community and responsibility through PSHE education

We cover community and responsibility within the ‘Living in the Wider World’ theme of our PSHE Education Programme of Study.

This includes learning about the different roles and responsibilities people have within their community. It is also important to teach about the benefits of living in a diverse community and strategies for challenging stereotypes and prejudice. 

Our Programme Builders show you how to plan this content it into your PSHE education curriculum and highlight quality assured lesson plans you can use.
