Examples of the actions we take to promote British Values

  • Ensuring all pupils are listened to by adults
  • Our RESPECT code which is fundamental to every aspect of school life
  •  A clear behaviour policy with class rules developed every year.
  • Encouraging children to become independent learners who take an active role in their learning; helping to shape the curriculum which ensures purpose and full engagement.
  • RE lessons provide pupils with a deep understanding of their own faith as well as an awareness of the faith and tradition of other religious communities as a basis for understanding and respecting them.
  • Using the witness of Jesus as an example of tolerance using Parables and stories from the Bible
