British Values

The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

Democracy:

This is taught through

  • Pupil voice
  • School Council  
  • Pupil questionnaires.
  • Sport and House Captains
  • Presenting Certificates for Values
  • Behaviour policy

The Rule of Law:

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty:

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons. Pupils are given the freedom to make choices throughout the day.

Mutual Respect:

Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around Core Values and pupils have been part of assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown. Posters promote respect through our classroom and learning rules, as well as our behaviour policy.

Tolerance of others

Pupils develop an understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and are given opportunities to experience such diversity by visiting other places of worship to support learning in RE.
