This example shows how Mossbourne Community Academy successfully promotes and encourages students’ active citizenship and positive contribution to the school and wider community. A cross-curricular approach to citizenship is complemented by a series of off-timetable days for the whole school. Three of these days centre on citizenship; the fourth is dedicated to personal, social and health education (PSHE). The impact of these days is impressive and the quality of learning excellent.
