How citizenship works in schools

How is registration and celebratory services involved with citizenship in schools, how to work with primary or senior schools and how to arrange for your school to be involved.

How is East Riding of Yorkshire registration and celebratory services involved with citizenship in schools?

We work with senior and primary schools to provide material for their citizenship course work e.g. props and costumes. Citizenship education is taught in schools, as an academic subject similar to politics or sociology.

How do you work with primary schools?

We visit primary schools, with local dignitaries such as deputy lieutenants and the chairman of the council. We deliver a short presentation and encourage discussion about citizenship in general i.e. local democracy, equalities, migrant population issues, crime reduction, anti-bullying, respect for each other and the environment.

We then deliver a mock citizenship ceremony using props. The children act out the roles of local dignitaries and new citizens.

How do you work with senior schools?

The senior schools host formal citizenship ceremonies. The students organise and coordinate events from catering, publicity, delivering readings, performing dances and songs.

How can I arrange for my school to be involved?

To arrange for your school to be involved in using the citizenship service please contact the main registration office on (01482) 393600. You will be able to discuss times, costs and any other information needed to provide the service for pupils.
