Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is "right" and "wrong", all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
As well as discrete learning around British Values, we also provide the following:
- A school council whose members take part in regular meetings and voting processes
- Opportunities to become ambassadors for different subjects. This involves respecting the views and opinions of others and taking part in regular presentations and democratic votes.
- A religious education (RE) curriculum that teaches about the beliefs and practices of all major religious groups
Our children are taught and know how to show respect to everyone no matter what our differences may be. We celebrate this diversity in our curriculum. Examples include our celebrations of different religious festivals throughout the year.
We love to celebrate acts of kindness and respect. Faith is always looking out for others and respects that we all have different opinions. She won our "Cool to be Kind" award in our celebration assembly.
We enjoy learning about how different cultures celebrate. The children loved exploring this African mask as part of their learning around Africa.
