- School Vision & Values
- British Values
The children see democracy modeled through their involvement with the pupil council. In addition staff explain the school structures e.g. parent council/governing body and also involve the children in making contact with the local council and community groups e.g. through their travel plan.
As a result of our Collective Worship program,PSHE/RE curriculums (including the use of the SEALS program,) and the role modeling by staff, respect is embedded as a fundamental school value.
The Rule of Law
Our children are involved in establishing the rules in our school. They have a deep understanding of the school's positive behaviour policy and the implications of their actions upon the well-being of themselves and others.
Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs
Whilst maintaining a broadly Christian basis for our Collective worship our core program of sharing celebrations and experiences linked to the backgrounds of our families (both religious and non-religious,) provides the opportunity to talk about and be proud of the children's lives outside school. It also allows children to gain a greater understanding of and show respect for each other's lifestyles.
The children in our school are taught that they have a right to have and express a view in a way that is part of a fair democratic system and takes the feelings of others into consideration. They are encouraged through the curriculum and behavior systems to make independent choices.
They are also taught that they have a responsibility as an individual to uphold all of the school values when outside in the community.
We are very proud of the way that our children demonstrate out school values through their behaviour, and we are pleased with the overwhelming positive feedback that we get from visitors and outside providers.
For further information of the way that our school values, (based on fundamental British values,) are communicated with our school see our behaviour, collective worship, and RE policies.
