Abstract

At Key Stages one and two, citizenship education is described in terms of non-statutory guidelines along with personal, social and health education. Whilst PSHE and citizenship are no doubt linked, they are not synonymous. Citizenship is concerned with thought and debate in the public arena, and as such has identifiable underpinning discourses. With this in mind, this article seeks to assist primary school teachers in conceptualising citizenship and distinguishing it from PSHE. To facilitate this, two scenarios are highlighted and examined for the way in which they are or are not examples of good citizenship education.
