British Values - democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance
British values are important in our school. There are many ways they can be seen in action:
- Our class rules encourage respect for each other and our learning environment. We have high expectations of learning behaviours which promotes respect for each other.
- Children learn the British Values, have discussions about their meaning and why they are important and think about how they are seen in school. Each class has an interactive display showing the British Values on which they gather ideas of where British Values can be seen in school.
- School council (a group of class representatives who have been democratically voted in) meets regularly to discuss issues, make decisions and organise events.
- School council representatives meet with our locality schools to share ideas and plan events together.
- The use of ‘talk partners’ and group work allows children to work together in harmony with others, regardless of differences in attainment or gender.
- Sports Crew initiatives encourage mutual respect.
- British values are also covered in worships and RSHE
- Through our RE curriculum and worships, children learn about different faiths, cultures, traditions, beliefs, families, ways of life, festivals and special days.
- Children share their own experiences of their own faith in school
- We are investigating a twinning project with a school in Tanzania.
- We take part in national events, like the Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Mental Health Awareness Week and World Book Day by holding events of our own.
- We raise money for a range of charities by holding events in school.
- Year 6 have an interactive experience learning about the UK legal system run by local magistrates.
