At Misterton Primary and Nursery School we actively teach our children about Fundamental British Values. We do this through our whole school curriculum, including PSHCE/ RSHE, assemblies and what we do in the daily life in school. By promoting British Values in school we ensure young people leave our school prepared for life in modern Britain. Staff are supported by Subject Leaders and also the KAPOW resource. The Schools recent Wellbeing Award for Schools supports and directs the drive for our work in British Values.
The Key British Values are:
How democracy flows through Misterton Primary School?
The ability to communicate is the most important area of learning. At Misterton Primary School we empower our children by giving them the opportunities to make choices about the things that they believe to be important. Pupil voice is regularly used by the school to seek children’s views and that of others about aspects of school life. By valuing each other’s voice we demonstrate that we support democracy and liberty.
How The Rule of Law flows through Misterton Primary School?
We involve children in the setting of the class rules; helping the children to make decisions and choices that are acceptable to the school community and community of Misterton and beyond. The link between actions and consequences are developed in children’s understanding. Children are taught about safety from a variety of visitors and this in turn develops then feeling safe in their environment.
How Individual Liberty flows through Misterton Primary School?
Children are supported in developing their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence from the very start of them joining Misterton nursery. We support each child being an individual, respecting themselves and being kind to themselves. Developing independence is an important part of understanding yourself.
How Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Beliefs of Others flows through Misterton Primary?
We live in a multi- faith community where each person is respected and valued equally without regard to ability, gender, faith, heritage or race. Cultural appreciation and the development of cultural capital are embedded in our curriculum intent. Prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour is openly challenged and there is an ethos in Misterton Primary School that models, upholds and celebrates kindness, empathy and an understanding for other’s point of view.
