R- Respectful and Responsible Citizens

Why is ensuring that children develop skills in becoming Responsible, Respectful and Safe Citizens one of our Key Drivers?:

The statistics:

  • Hull has the 3rd highest crime rate in the country.
  • TheDeprivationindex for crime in Hull is 1.8
  • Living environment decile 1.6
  • For the Humberside Police region, Hull has 50% more crimes than any other of their areas.
  • Over the past 4 years, crime rates have risen from 28 reported crimes per thousand people to 43 reported crimes per thousand people.
  • Hull is 2% higher than the national average for people being off work due to mental health.
  • Hull is double the national average for deaths due to lung cancer and coronory heart disease. Females are even slightly higher than double.
  • Hull has double the national average of vulnerable pupils including looked after, children in need and children on child protection plan.
  • The total mortality rate of deaths that were considered preventable (279 per 100000) is is significantly higher than the national average (178 per 100000).

What it means:

  • Children at Craven are growing up in a city that has particulary high levels of deprivation, crime rates, and high mortality rates.

  • As they grow older they are more and more exposed to these risks, and they can be directly or indirectly affected by them. 

  • By focussing one of our curriculum areas into developing responsible, respectful citizens, we aim to give children the knowledge and experience that will develop law abiding citizens, who have a sense of right and wrong, and who can make sensible informed choices to keep themselves healthy both physically and mentally.
