Our British Values Focus this Term 

In our assemblies this term, we will be looking primarily at the British values of Rule of Law and Mutual Respect, in relation to our school rules. Our assemblies will also like to our school values of Responsibility, Resilience and Respect.

In class, our focus will be on the British Values of Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with Different Faiths. We will be looking at democracy in the UK, linking to where it originated in Ancient Greece, and discuss whether it was fair that groups of people were treated differently in Ancient Greece. We will look into Humanism as a modern alternative to other religions and how it is important to respect different people’s beliefs.

Diversity

One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain.

To support that this term, we will be looking at how other cultures lived in the past through our Ancient Greek topic topic. In PSHE, we will be looking at the Paralympics and how people with disabilities overcome their difficulties to achieve their goals, with a focus on Ade Adepitan and what he has achieved so far in his life.
