We take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern multicultural Britain very seriously. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, SMSC, and Philosophy lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace concepts of, Mutual Respect, Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs, Democracy, The Rule of Law and Individual Liberty, with pride and we continuously encourage them to demonstrate a good understanding of the application of these to their own lives.
Through our curriculum, we ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community, during which these concepts are shown, through for example, local community events and church events, class charity work, sporting events, a range of visits to and visitors from places of cultural and educational interests in and around London. Our school’s embedded values-based ethos gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
