Promoting British Values

In 2011, the government defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.  We promote these values through our own school values, curriculum and enrichment activities.

Keeping Healthy

 

  • We have an elected School Council. This is used as an opportunity to promote and teach about democracy and the electoral process.
  • We encourage children to participate in many aspects of school life. This includes things such as the Sports Crew, Lunch time servers and  School Buddies.
  • The beginnings of democracy are taught through historical research of the Ancient Greece civilisation.
  • Democracy is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and assemblies.

 

The rule of law

Respect

Love of learning

 

  • We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy. There are rewards for exhibiting good and caring behaviour and consistent demonstration of our values is recognised through such things as our CHAMPS awards.
  • Through our school assemblies, SEAL sessions and PSHE children are

taught how to earn trust and respect and are supported to develop a strong sense of morality; knowing right from wrong and doing the right thing even when it’s difficult.

  • The local police officer / PCSO visit the school to talk to the children and explain about their role in society.

 

Individual liberty

Love of learning

 

  • Through our school values and the SEAL PSHE program, children are taught about personal responsibility, choices, ambition and aspiration. They are encouraged to take opportunities to follow their interests in art, music, sport etc.
  • SEAL has specific units relating to individual liberty including ‘Good To Be Me!’
  • Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, including E Safety. This is done through computing lessons, assemblies and outside organisations such as the NSPCC, as well as through the PSHE curriculum.

 

Mutual respect

  • We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy
  • Through our school’s values, RE curriculum, SEAL scheme, PSHE and circle time children are taught to respect each other, to be cooperative and collaborative, be supportive and to look for similarities while being understanding of differences.
  • The SEAL theme of ‘Getting on and Falling Out’ explores these issues well.
  • Mutual respect is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and assemblies.

 

Tolerance of different

faiths and beliefs

  • We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy
  • Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs is promoted through the Religious Education Curriculum. Children learn about different religions, their beliefs, places of worship and festivals. The children’s work on this subject or whole school learning in assemblies is often

displayed in the classrooms or around the school.

  • This is supplemented by assemblies (Key Stage and whole school), which also mark and celebrate significant religious festivals such as Ramadan and Diwali.
  • Visitors from other faiths are welcomed into the school

 

British Traditions and

Heritage

Partnership

 

  • We celebrate the role of Britain both historically and in the present. We want pupils to have knowledge of and be proud of their British heritage and the cultural and historical traditions that we are renowned for the world over. This involves celebrating Royal events, Remembrance Day, festivals such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter (alongside those from other cultures such as Eid, Diwali and Chinese New Year, for example).
