ICE at Baysgarth stands for Identity, Culture and Ethics. It introduces students to ideas, concepts and information which is not always covered in their subject lessons.
- Identity is information which has a direct link to you, for example, healthy lifestyle.
- Culture looks at the places where we live and the people we interact with and why we do certain things.
- Ethics is to do with right and wrong e.g. bullying.
We study ICE so that we have a better understanding of the world around us. It allows students to develop the knowledge, skills and conviction to use effectively throughout all parts of their lives.
ICE lessons run roughly every 2-3 weeks for a two hour session in every year group.
The following topics are studied during ICE sessions:
- Health Lifestyle
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Sustainable development
Two main aspects of ICE are British Values and PREVENT. There are five main British Values:
- The rule of law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
PREVENT is about protecting people and communities from the threat of terrorism. PREVENT has been introduced by the British Government to try to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
