British Values

Our rationale for British Values & Community Cohesion

Central to the development of children’s skills for life, is their understanding of themselves and their place within the society and country they live in. We believe children should be taught strong values to support their respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and those without faith; an understanding of individual liberty, the rule of law and democracy. We nurture children in British Values and community cohesion through a curriculum that enriches children’s experiences of societal and world-wide issues and current affairs; through involvement and education on democratic voting processes and politics; through education and discussion about the law and justice system; through a strong sense of school identity and restorative approaches that encourage deep refection of individual actions and consequences; through a celebration of individuality and success, team work and pride, and opportunities to work with a broad range of children from different cultures and in support of the local community.
