SPARK Overview (PSHE, SMSC and Citizenship Education)

The SPARK curriculum is designed to encourage students to become successful learners who have a well-rounded understanding of life both in and out of school. At the Academy, we uphold our duty to promote British Values and to contribute to the development of students’ sense of identity through knowledge and understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural heritages of Britain’s diverse society and the local, national, European, Commonwealth and global dimension of their lives.

The Academy acknowledges its responsibility to foster informed discussion and protect students from the potential harm caused by extremist* attitudes of all sorts.

*The Government has defined extremism in the Prevent Strategy as “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British Values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
