Promoting British Values at Westfields Infant School
In November 2014, the Government published guidance on promoting British Value in schools. These values were developed to make sure that all young people in Britain leave school as valuable, fully rounded members of society. All schools have a responsibility to promote these British values; embedding them into the ethos and the whole school curriculum.
Here at Westfields, we believe that these values run through our school. We sent the school council out to question the children about these values, in easy to understand language. From their views and opinions we have developed our own easy to understand definitions.
We are able to help make decisions through class discussions and through the School Council.
The Rule of Law
We follow the Rules, especially the Golden Rules, and they help to keep us safe. This makes our School a happy and fun place to learn.
We can make choices in School and have our own beliefs and ideas.
Mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs
We all follow the Golden Rules but we don’t all have the same beliefs and opinions.
We show respect to each other by listening and considering each other’s ideas even if we don’t agree with them.
We aim to develop these values; children who leave us knowing their responsibilities and treating others with tolerance and respect, regardless of their background. The table below shows how the British Values are promoted here at our Infant School.
