You could ask the following questions:

  • What does our PSHE and citizenship offer comprise? How do we know it is effective? What evidence is there for this?
  • How do we know that our PSHE and citizenship teaching has positive outcomes for pupils? What evidence is there of this?
  • How do we monitor our PSHE and citizenship teaching? Who is responsible for this?
  • How do we ensure our citizenship teaching meets the requirements of the National Curriculum programmes of study?
  • How does our PSHE and citizenship offer contribute to the school’s overall aims and ethos?
