At St Nicholas CE Infants' School British Values are embedded within our whole-school vision of Becoming The Best We Can Be.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
· rule of law
· individual liberty
· mutual respect
· tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
We want our children to become responsible, active citizens who participate in democracy and public life with respect for diversity and a commitment to working with the wider community. Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is at the heart of our school which emphasises the difference between right and wrong and respecting and tolerating differences in a very diverse and modern Britain.
We have planned a curriculum that will enable children to make progress towards these aims. Through engaging lessons and appropriate activities/assemblies, we can give them all a better understanding of themselves and others in the community in which they live. We endeavour to influence behaviour, attendance and encourage further involvement and commitment to education.
We encourage parents to use the weekly Collective Worship themes and related questions to continue the conversations at home, and to explore the themes presented in further detail. These are shared via ClassDojo.
