Promoting 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:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Democracy

 

We encourage children to know their opinions are important and taken into account:

  • PSHE Curriculum
  • Visitors to the school including police
  • School Council – children vote for members of the school council
  • House captain elections
  • EYFS – People who help us topic
  •  

 

The Rule of Law

 

We encourage children to understand the need for rules and to understand the consequences of their actions:

  • PSHE Curriculum
  • ICT Curriculum – e-safety
  • Anti-bullying productions
  • Behaviour policy
  • EYFS – People who help us topic
  • Reward systems
  • Class rules

 

Individual Liberty

 

Children have opportunities to join in with a wide range of activities.  This helps develop their confidence and self-esteem.

  • PSHE Curriculum
  • Home/School link worker
  • Celebration assemblies
  • Interventions
  • After school clubs
  • Reception and Year 6 buddy programme
  • Talk partners

 

Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

 

We encourage children to treat everyone equally and to listen and respect other people’s opinions, beliefs and values:

  • Visits to church for Harvest, Carol Service and Remembrance Sunday
