Promoting Fundamental 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:
The school have a commitment to promoting British values and ensuring that are pupils are brought up in an environment that encourages understanding, respect and tolerance of different cultures and beliefs. The curriculum actively promotes respect for democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.
Our school culture encourages a deep understanding and high respect for individual differences and tolerance of individual needs.
This forms an integral part of the curriculum and is taught through out the school day.
Formal sessions such as PSHE, RE and self advocacy will address issues such as rights and responsibilities, anti-bullying, cultural diversity, acceptance of and promotion of individual difference, acceptable behaviours and understanding the need for rules and laws.
These concepts are reinforced across the curriculum and may be incorporated in all aspects of school life.
Nurturing sessions and Forest Schools activities promote pupils understanding of self and others encouraging sharing, turn taking, taking responsibility for and caring for our environment. Pupils are encouraged to reflect directly on their own behaviours and support peers to behave an in appropriate manner.
Pupils are encouraged at all times to take pride in being part of the school and to take care of their environment.
Residential and non-residential off site experiences are used to develop a greater understanding of the diversity in British life and other cultures including visiting other countries.
In school visiting productions and workshops add to pupils learning. Recently these have included visits from Paint, the Lions of Zululand and ‘Hope’ anti-bullying performance and workshop.
