National 'curriculum for life' campaign

"We believe that the place of citizenship education and PSHE in the curriculum should be radically overhauled through a youth-led UK-wide review; they are really important for young people’s growth and development as they teach vital life skills and can be the first steps to engaging young people in political life. Teaching staff should be specifically trained to a national standard to deliver citizenship education following this review’

MYP’s are asking all Hampshire Academies to agree to teach a Curriculum for Life. Please support us or give us your views, Tweet us @UKYPHampshire using #lessons4life or get in touch on our Facebook page.
