British Values in Holy Family
At Holy Family RC Primary School we take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. We value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils, families and the wider community and undertake a variety of events, curriculum mapping, learn about and celebrate these. Furthermore, we are thrilled to offer our bespoke Aspire Programme. This is our personal curriculum enhancement which gives our children the opportunity to explores key roles in British society and outstanding individuals who have made a positive contribution to our country, linked to the five British values
The Five British Values are:
- Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance of other Faith and Beliefs*
*At Holy Family, we link tolerance of other faiths and beliefs with our Equality values and ensure children are guided and nurtured to be tolerant of all protected characteristics, including gender, race and disability.
Holy Family school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community, during which the concepts of tolerance, respect, democracy, rule of law, liberty and sportsmanship are shown through, for example, sporting events, a range of educational visits and use of outdoor education centres. World events are highlighted and celebrated – the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the King’s Coronation, the Olympics and Paralympics, the World Cup to name but a few. These real life situations provide our children with an excellent platform to embrace and value difference.
It is our intent, that the study of British Values is both meaningful and inspiring at Holy Family, and this can be seen through our extensive mapping and enhancements, as well as our ethos.
