Citizenship relates to peace and justice in several ways, for example:
All pupils should develop a sound knowledge and understanding of the role of law and the justice system in our society and how laws are shaped and enforced;
Teaching should develop pupils’ understanding of democracy, government and the rights and responsibilities of citizens.
British values form part of these targets.
Pupils should be taught about:
- local, regional and international governance and the United Kingdom’s relations with the rest of Europe, the Commonwealth, the United Nations and the wider world;
- human rights and international law;
- diverse national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the United Kingdom and the need for mutual respect and understanding;
- the different ways in which a citizen can contribute to the improvement of his or her community, to include the opportunity to participate actively in community volunteering, as well as other forms of responsible activity.
