British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Development
The DfE have stated the need:
To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all school to promote the fundamental British values of:
The rule of law
Individual liberty and
Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
These values are important within our school community and will be important throughout life. In all that we do we strive to share, encourage and demonstrate positive values with our children, in order that they understand them and strive to live by them.
We are committed to the development of positive community links and the prevention of extremism and radicalisation both within our school’s physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments. We are also committed to responding to community concerns or local disturbances in a positive way which supports British democratic society.
We believe that sharing our values with parents, carers and our community is essential in supporting the children through their journey in school and life. We acknowledge and understand the importance of the role that our community has to play and appreciate the need to inform them the values of our work.
We do this through our school website, newsletters, school assemblies and inviting parents and cares to meetings and open mornings.
