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:
School celebrates the main religious festivals of all the main religions and pupils are encouraged to share their experiences with pupils in assembly and within the classroom.
In October 2017 school will be celebrating Diwali day across the school. Pupils will be learning about the celebration, dressing in traditional clothes and participating in various activities.
Key events on the calendar are celebrated- for example- harvest, bonfire night, Halloween, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s day, May Day, St. George’s day.
Local and national elections are opportunities for pupils to find out more about democracy and we are lucky to have a local Councillor on our local Governing committee to help us-see YouTube channel.
Pupils are keen to support charitable causes. These include harvest when pupils donated food for the local food banks, Race for Life, Children in Need to name a few. We encourage pupils to support and help those less fortunate than themselves.
Promoting mutual respect as part of our British values.
