To help the children develop self-confidence and a sense of personal worth, and to assist them in becoming citizens for the future, our lessons are underpinned by the British Values: Democracy; Rule of Law; Individual Liberty; Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths & Beliefs.
For example, creating a class code at the start of term covers a wide range of British Values: it requires democracy as all are voting for behaviours they believe are required within a classroom. Individual Liberty is expressed through the choice of rules and expectations, then the code created becomes the Rule of Law for those children in that classroom. Pupils show Mutual Respect and develop socially by listening to one another’s ideas and following the class code.
Collective Worship, RE lessons and PHSE are all areas where pupils develop morally and spiritually through deeper discussions and understanding as well as showing a Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs.
