R- Respectful and Responsible Citizens
Why is ensuring that children develop skills in becoming Responsible, Respectful and Safe Citizens one of our Key Drivers?:
- Hull has the 3rd highest crime rate in the country.

- 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.
