British Values

British Values at Barming Primary School

 

As part of the broad and balanced curriculum we offer at Barming Primary School, we have a commitment to promote fundamental British values as part of the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of our children.

Children that come to Barming Primary School will learn about British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

 

Democracy – How do we promote this?

  • Through our PSHE curriculum (Go-Givers) children learn about the advantages and disadvantages of democracy and how it works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries.
  • We actively promote democratic processes by holding school council and house captain elections, whose members are voted for by the children.
  • We hold ‘mock elections’ to promote fundamental British values and provide children with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view.
  • We help pupils to express their views and ensure that all children are listened to.

 

Rule of law – How do we promote this?

  • Our  behaviour management system encourages children to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and to understand how they can contribute positively to life at Barming Primary School.
  • Our behaviour management system helps children to distinguish right from wrong.
  • We help children to respect the law and the basis on which it is made.
  • We organise visits from outside agencies in the curriculum to teach children about road safety and public services such as the Police.
  • Children are taught aspects of both civil and criminal law and discuss how this might differ from some religious laws.

 

Individual liberty – How do we promote this?

  • We support children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • We encourage children to take responsibility for their behaviour, as well as knowing their rights.
  • Our PSHE programme (Go-Givers) allows our children to have freedom of speech, challenge stereotypes and has built a strong anti-bullying culture at Barming Primary School.

 

Respect and tolerance – How do we promote this?

  • We promote respect for individual differences by discussing differences between people, such as differences of faith, ethnicity, disability and gender.
  • Help children to acquire an understanding of, and respect for, their own and other cultures and ways of life.
  • Challenge prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.
  • Organise visits to places of worship.

The Royal Wedding

 

On Friday 18th May we will be celebrating the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Miss Megan Markle. We are all very excited!

 

The children will be wearing red, white and blue or party clothes and Contract Dining are even putting on a special lunch for us. Yummy!

 

We will then be celebrating by learning more about our royal family in the afternoon...
