Citizenship in secondary schools: evidence from Ofsted inspections (2003/04)

Increasingly, schools are taking National Curriculum citizenship seriously and establishing comprehensive programmes. As yet, however, pupils' achievement and the quality of teaching compare unfavourably with established subjects and there is little that is graded very good. In one in four schools, provision is unsatisfactory. There are growing numbers of expert teachers, and most teaching is satisfactory, but citizenship is generally less well taught where tutors are involved.
