ETHICS

What is Ethics?

The study of ethics is learning the moral principles that govern a person's behaviour or the conducting of an activity.

At Unity City Academy we wholeheartedly believe in developing the whole child. Therefore, our Ethics syllabus is planned around the nine characteristics  that we, as a school, believe will help in developing the whole child’s character.

 

KS3 Syllabus

Focussing on the 9 characteristics of curiosity, courage, enthusiasm, empathy, gratitude, integrity, resilience, self belief and self control students will begin to develop themselves as a whole and be ready to take on the next chapter of their life.

Lessons focus on key areas within these 9 characteristics such as: stereotypes, careers, an aspect of religious education, helping someone else, SRE, resilience, on-line grooming, creating your own school and laws and drugs and the law. This allows students the basic knowledge around key aspects and also allows them to build their character by linking the topics to the key characteristics.

 

KS4 Syllabus

Focussing on the 9 characteristics of curiosity, courage, enthusiasm, empathy, gratitude, integrity, resilience, self belief and self control students will begin to develop themselves as a whole and be ready to move into future chapters of their lives with a sound basis.  

Lessons focus on key areas within the 9 characteristics such as: cyberbullying, radicalisation, body image, peer pressure, careers, an aspect of religious education, helping someone else, SRE, revision skills, creating your own political party/legal system, drugs, alcohol and the law. This allows students the basic knowledge around key aspects and also allows them to build their character by linking the topics to the key characteristics.

With these special skill sets and developing your child as a whole, they will become a better person within their the community, more employable and ready and excited to go on with life after school.
