PSHE and Fundamental British Values
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.
BRITISH VALUES STATEMENT
At Ratby Primary School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families and the wider school community and are committed to the academic, personal, social, moral and emotional development of all our pupils. Our school is a safe, caring, stimulating learning environment where the effort and achievement of every single child is celebrated and valued. In working closely with pupils, parents and the wider community our team encourage children to develop into confident and compassionate young people with a strong sense of belonging. All pupils experience a relevant, vibrant and broad curriculum that supports and challenges them to reach their full potential. We aim to nurture motivated learners who have the self-belief and independence to achieve excellence and succeed.
At Ratby Primary School we aim to promote and reflect British Values in all that we do. We pride ourselves on a whole school approach to promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of our pupils.
Our Cornerstones Curriculum puts SMSC and Fundamental British Values at the heart of everything our pupils do. Many of our Imaginative Learning Projects promote aspects of SMSC and FBV. For example, in Year 1 children learn about right, wrong, rules and laws in the exciting ‘Superheroes’ project. Whilst in Year 5 pupils learn about people from another culture in the lively ‘Rio de Vida’ topic.
