C.W.E.S.T at Mark Rutherford


C.W.E.S.T Citizenship; Well Being; Enterprise Economic; S.E.A.L; Thinking Skills is changing!!  After much consultation and debate, we have decided to organise the subject in the following way from September 2009 -:

  • C.W.E.S.T will not be taught as individual lessons for all Year groups (7 to 13).
  • The subject will be incorporated into mainstream subjects. For example, sex education will be taught predominately in Science lessons. Science already teaches the issues in that topic.  Physical Education (PE) will continue to look at issues like healthy eating.
  • Additional to the above point, we will have up to 5 days off timetable where we shall look at personal development issues either not covered in mainstream subjects and/or to consolidate issues.  There will be speakers coming into school to give talks and performances to each Year group. There will also be performances from the Drama Department.

I am sure you’ll agree that exciting times are ahead!!
