Our promotion of British Values in school
As a school, we value and celebrate the diverse heritages of everybody. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. In general terms, this means that we celebrate traditions and customs in the course of the year; for example, Harvest Festival, Eid, Diwali and Christmas to name but a few. We also value and celebrate national events, e.g. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Our school's core values align closely with British values and through these, our pupils will become productive citizens of modern Britain. These values are threaded throughout school life and evident in pupils’ behaviour in all areas. These values are taught explicitly through Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE) and Religious Education (RE) and through our deep and rich, concept curriculum underpinned by our Christian Values.
Children learn about being part of Britain from different perspectives. They learn where Britain is in relation to the rest of Europe and other countries in the world and about significant events in British history such as ‘The Gunpowder plot’ and key historical figures.
