CPRE (Citizenship, PSHEE & RE) 2019-2020

Head of Department: Mrs. M. Timberlake
Email Address:  mtimberlake@gilbertinglefield.com

 Religious Education, Citizenship and PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health, Emotional Well Being and Economic Understanding) have been combined in Years 7 and 8. The subject will be taught in topics that will develop their understanding, tolerance and an appreciation for the world we live in and the people we meet. We will also look at ‘life skills’ from careers to emotional well being, drug education to growing up.

CPRE is taught in a range of ways from using multimedia and interactive software to involving the students in role play and discussions. Experiential lessons, drama, group work and personal research are integral to our lessons. We follow the Bedfordshire Agreed Syllabus for the RE lesson topics. The PSHEE topics cover National Curriculum guidelines. Where possible in the curriculum, visits and visitors enhance the learning experience for our pupils.

Careers education will by led by Mrs White.

Where appropriate, units will be linked to enhance the pupils learning.
