The 4 Main British Values
Pupils, parents, and staff should have the right to have their voices heard. We have a pupil-elected school council where class representatives raise issues and suggest ideas for improvement.
The Rule Of Law:
The importance of law and rules is taught and reinforced to teach students to distinguish between right and wrong. This helps children to take responsibility for their own actions. Key Stage 2 Students are taught the reasons behind rules and laws, how they govern and protect us, and the consequences of what happens when these laws are broken.
The promotion of freedom of choice and the right to respectfully express views and beliefs in a safe environment is explained to pupils. Children are supported to understand that they have rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely.
Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths or Beliefs:
Children are taught to show empathy and understanding of people from different backgrounds. Pupils are given regular opportunities to learn about different cultures and beliefs to reinforce messages of tolerance and respect. This allows pupils to understand and respect values different to their own.
Through weekly Picture News assemblies, we allow children to develop their understanding of current affairs and allow children to let their voices be heard and respect others’ opinions. Thus ensuring that our children are able to share their own experiences, look at how they can make a difference and become leaders of the future!
