British Values

 British Values at More Park

 
The DfE have 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.”


The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.   At More Park we actively promote values, virtues and ethics that shape our pupils' character and moral perspective. 


Our focus on the Gospel Values helps to give our pupils the necessary awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in Britain today, and embed in them the building blocks of a future successful and productive life.


Democracy
Children have many opportunities for their voices to be heard.  The elections of the School Council members and House Captains are based solely on pupil votes, demonstrating democracy in action.


Pupils are always listened to by adults and are taught to listen carefully and with concern to each other, respecting the right of every individual to have their opinions and voices heard.  “The Listening Ear” enables pupils to voice their concerns and share their opinions.  In addition to this, the children have an annual questionnaire with which they are able to put forward their views about the school.


The Rule of Law
The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school acts of worship.  Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.
 
Individual Liberty 
Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and empowering education.  Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our online safety and RHSE lessons. 
  
Mutual Respect
The school’s mission statement is centred on Christ’s love and Gospel Values.  Children are taught the importance of values such as justice, peace and mercy and encouraged to live out these values in their daily lives.   Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others.  All members of the school community treat each other with respect. 
The children are proactive in raising money for local and national charities, taking a lead with initiatives. 

 

The RE curriculum provides the children with a deep understanding of their own faith and allows them to be aware of the faith and traditions of other religions.  Multi faith days and outside speakers are used to enrich the curriculum and teach children about tolerance and respect.
