Promoting Fundamental British Values.
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:
Our British Value Leaders have been elected to represent these values in each class and each phase to set an example. We encourage our classes to vote for decisions using the class ballot box and use our class ballot boxes to vote for peers who have shown British Values each term.
Our British Values Leader in school is Mrs Rhodes-Evans, make sure you come and see her if you have anything you would like to know or share!
Pupil Parliament is now under way within our school. This exciting new initiative is being overseen by Mrs. Rhodes-Evans and our Prime Minister is being voted for by our children.
The Pupils Parliament is made up from the following leaders within the school:
The pupils introduced their 'parties' and what they would represent within the Parliament during worship to the whole school. Here are a few quotes from the representatives speeches:
"The baton to steer this council has now fallen into our hands and we promise that we will put all hands on deck by continuing the good work of our predecessors."
"In carrying out our duties of school council, we will consult and engage with our classmates to sample their opinions and approval in every matter."
"We will apply the British Values to any problem anyone has, so we can solve it as best as we can. Our party will make you happy by taking on board your thoughts and advice and by making the school fun"
"Our party are going to put our thinking caps on and reflect the RE Ambassadors' point of view. We will also be judging all decisions on the Christian Values: Koinonia, Friendship, Service, Trust and Wisdom within the decisions we make.
Once our Prime Minister has been voted for, the Pupil Parliament will work together with the Prime minister to discuss and plan a way forward with crucial decisions within the school.
The members of staff who wanted the chance to be Prime Minister stood in front of the children and delivered a speech on why they would make a good Prime Minister. Our pupils will now vote in their ballot boxes for the member of staff they want to be our Primem Minister!
