This year our ethics teachers teach from the 2017 curriculum. This is our ‘odd year’ curriculum which is undergoing review, including feedback from ethics teachers, since it was last taught in 2015. Each stage of the curriculum is taught in
alternate years, so that no child repeats a topic in their seven years of ethics classes.
With 25% of our volunteers now over 60, we recognise the contribution of retirees and grandparents to ethics education. This has been recognised in the media recently too!
