Core Personal Development and Citizenship (PDC) and Religious Education (RE)

The PDC curriculum

is delivered with Core RE through weekly one hour lessons in form groups. PDC

provision follows the Citizenship National Curriculum (2012) and includes a range of non-statutory personal

development topics age appropriate to Year 10 and 11 students. The citizenship curriculum is underpinned

by core British values of tolerance and respect for other cultures, individual liberty, democracy and the rule

of law.

Core Religious Education (RE)

is an important part of our provision for spiritual, moral, social and cultural

education. Our Core RE offer in Years 10 and 11 satisfies the requirement under the law that Religious

Education should be provided for all registered pupils except for those withdrawn at the request of their

parents. In line with the Education Act 2006, RE at The Ecclesbourne School ‘reflects the fact that the

religious traditions in Great Britain are, in the main, Christian while taking account of the teaching and

practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain’. Core RE is delivered alongside the

PDC programme in weekly one hour lessons and in a stand-alone RE day during the summer term of Year

10. The Core RE syllabus is based on the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus.
