Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain At St Mary's CE Primary School.
We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school.
Many curriculum areas, in particular our RE and PSHE lessons, provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives. The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
We use the Primary News resources twice a week with every class which incorporate all of the British Values into each session.
Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith:
