Sociology Curriculum Intent

GCSE Sociology helps pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of key social structures, processes and issues through the study of families, education, crime and deviance and social stratification.

Pupils will develop their analytical, assimilation and communication skills by comparing and contrasting perspectives on a variety of social issues, constructing reasoned arguments, making substantiated judgements and drawing reasoned conclusions.
