Subject: Health and Social Care

Our Health and Social Care curriculum provides students with an understanding of service users and how vital they are in our society. It develops environmentally aware global citizens that are empowered to solve problems in this beautifully complex world. 

The curriculum allows students to develop a deep knowledge of service users and providers and how they support each other. It encourages curiosity of people ensures students are empowered to ask theoretical questions about the best way to support service users. Students will learn to appreciate the differences between us and develop an understanding of how service users think and interact with providers.  

Through our Health and Social Care curriculum, students will learn to confidently use a range of data to investigate communication and develop their critical thinking skills, numeracy, and literacy. They will expand their Health and Social Care vocabulary and use it to communicate Health and Social Care ideas through discussion, debate, and writing.  Students will develop the skills to identify and challenge bias when thinking about critically different perspectives and to develop understanding of the big ideas in Health and Social Care and how they interconnect. 

We develop High Performance Learners by teaching students how to be enquiring service providers with a concern for society and who can make connections across their learning and think critically and logically about societal issues concerning social care. We will develop global citizens that are motivated to investigate issues affecting a diverse range of service users now and in the future and who are empowered to solve problems the world may face.
