British Values

Democracy

Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance

Our work in school, our behaviours at playtime and at lunchtime should reflect these values. As a school, we take part in activities throughout the year which aim to develop our knowledge and understanding of these values, helping us to become better citizens.

ValueLink to School CharacteristicHow we promote it
DemocracyResponsibility, Tolerance, Integrity, Honesty, TrustWe have a School Council where members are elected by pupils. This is used as an opportunity to promote and teach respect about democracy and the electoral process. Democracy is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons, circle times and assemblies.
Rule of LawHonesty, Responsibility, Co-operation, Teamwork, CommunicationWe teach pupils to appreciate that living under the rule of law in Britain protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety. We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy, Always Badges and Boundary Promises. There are rules for exhibiting responsible actions and respectful behaviour, demonstration of our values is recognised through such things as weekly achievement awards (Star of the Week) and house team trophies. Through our school assemblies, and events such as Sports Day, 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 and making good choices even when it's difficult.
Individual LibertyHonesty, Courage, Teamwork, Perseverance, Determination, CuriosityThrough our school characteristics, assemblies and the PSHE programme, children are taught about personal responsibility, choices, ambition and aspiration. They are encouraged to take opportunities to follow their interests in art, music, sport and a range of extra-curricular clubs that support these choices and interests are available. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, including online. This is done through computing lessons and outside organisations, as well as through the PSHE curriculum.
Mutual RespectAppreciation, Teamwork, honesty, Understanding, Tolerance, Courage, Perseverance, Determination, Loyalty, AcceptanceChildren are taught to understand the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination. We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy, Always badges and the Boundary Promises. Children are taught to respect each other, to be co-operative and collaborative and to look for similarities while being understanding of differences. Mutual respect is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and special days, such as Anti- Bullying Day. EAL support/provision is appropriate, caring and respectful; for adults and children. We also have cultural days.
ToleranceAppreciation, Teamwork, Honesty, Understanding, Tolerance, Courage, Perseverance, Determination, AcceptanceWe teach children that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law. We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy and Boundary Promises. Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs is promoted through the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Children learn about different religions, their beliefs, places of worship and festivals. The pupils’ work on this subject is displayed in the classrooms or around the school. This is supplemented by celebrations of significant religious festivals such as Diwali. Visits are made by local religious groups and people such as the local vicar, Children have the opportunity to visit places of worship.
