what you have to do, your responsibility.
British values are promoted through this aspect of our vision by:
The Rule of Law
The importance of laws, whether they are those that govern the class, the school or the country, are consistently reinforced day to day through our behaviour management systems.
Pupils will be taught the value of and the reasons behind our laws; that they govern and protect us; the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.
Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.
We promote freedom of choice and the right to respectfully express views and beliefs. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised to exercise these safely, for example through our Anti-Bullying, E-safety and PSHCE lessons.
Respect and Tolerance
All our pupils develop an understanding of respect for a wide range of religious values, languages and cultural traditions and different ways of life
Our pupils understand that it is expected that respect is shown to everyone, irrespective of whatever differences they may have. Children learn that their behaviour choices have an effect on their own rights and those of others. We always challenge prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour. We encourage our pupils to be thoughtful and reflective learners. We discuss differences between people, such as differences of faith, ethnicity, disability, gender or sexuality and differences of family situations, such as looked-after children or young carers.
Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour in the classroom. Their successes are reflected on the class behaviour charts. Children who are demonstrating positive attitudes and showing they are making an effort to follow the school and class rules get moved up to on the chart. Behaviours which get rewarded include: getting on with their work, helping other children to be successful and not interrupting the learning of others. Children earn credits for their positive behaviour; these credits get collected and result in whole class treats when the total has been met.
Responsibility is encouraged outside in the playground too. We expect children to be positive play partners, following the playground rules, joining in with games, including others in their play and getting on with each other. If the adults spot children showing all these characteristics then they award the children positive play token, these are posted into the year group box. Every Friday a token is pulled out of the box and this child gets to take the positive play trophy home for the week.
Duty/Dazzle assembly on a Friday focus on praising all the children who have shown they have done their duty and taken responsibility for making good choices during the week in school. Class teachers choose a child who has shown this quality particularly well and they are rewarded with the class positive role model trophy for doing their duty exceptionally well that week.
