British Values Statement

British Values Statement – Federation of Bursledon Schools April 2016  

 

Democracy    Individual Liberty

  • Children are involved in Democratic processes e.g. voting for school councillors, reward systems etc
  • The school council is  led by a member of the SLT and GB who both adhere to democratic processes.
  • We have links to the local PCSOs who come into school to educate the children about upholding British law and values.
  • Children have key roles and responsibilities in school, such as children in Key Stage 2 who take on the roles of supporting KS1 in the infant school at lunchtime, Buddies and Librarians.
  • Within school, children are actively encouraged to make choices, take risks and persevere, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.
  • As schools, we educate and provide boundaries for children to make choices safely.
  • Through our varied curriculum, children are given the freedom to make choices.
  • The Values and Ethos statement, created by staff and pupils, is embodied in all that we do in both our schools.

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

  • Our R.E curriculum provides a broad and balanced education on a range of faiths, religions and cultures, with a  strong focus on the Christian values of Love, Respect and Aspire
  • We have a growing number of E.A.L children and actively use school resources to promote their learning and integration into our schools
  • We teach specific PSHE units to develop respect and tolerance
  • We have staff/ visitors from other countries and faiths who share their language and culture with our pupils.
  • As schools that serve a richly diverse community, we take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, generate a respect for difference and individual rights seriously. Our challenging curriculum enables pupils to recognise the valuable role that they play as emerging citizens in British society.
  • All staff have had initial training on the Respect Agenda and SLT x3 have been trained to deliver further enhanced training
