OIAm - Personal Learning

Personal Learning at One In A Million Free School equips young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in their personal and public life.

Personal Learning encourages them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate.

Students learn about their rights, responsibilities, duties and freedoms and about laws, justice and democracy.

They learn to take part in decision-making and different forms of action. They play an active role in the life of their schools, neighbourhoods, communities and wider society as active and global citizens.

Personal Learning encourages respect for different national, religious and ethnic identities. It equips students to engage critically with and explore diverse ideas, beliefs, cultures and identities and the values we share as citizens in the UK.

Personal Learning develops addresses issues relating to social justice, human rights, community cohesion and global interdependence, and encourages students to become compassionate and challenge injustice, inequalities and discrimination.

It helps young people to develop their critical skills, consider a wide range of political, social, ethical and moral problems, and explore opinions and ideas other than their own.

They evaluate information, make informed judgements and reflect on the consequences of their actions now and in the future. They learn to debate a case on behalf of others as well as themselves and speak out on issues of concern.

At Key Stage 4 students can work towards achieving a short course GCSE in  Citizenship.
