British Values

In 2011, the Government defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We promote these values through our own school values, our varied curriculum and through enrichment activities.

Mission Statement:

At Crondall Primary School we work together as a community to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment where children are motivated to learn, are valued as individuals and encouraged to achieve their full potential.

Value How we Promote It
Democracy
Links to the school values:
We respect, care for and listen to each other.UN CRC Article 12: Children have the right to say what they think should happen, when adults are making decisions that affect them, and to have their opinions taken into account.
  • We have an elected School Council. This is used as an opportunity to promote and teach democracy and the electoral process.
  • We encourage volunteering in school. This includes things like sports leaders, representing the school in different events and Year 6 roles and responsibilities.
  • Democracy is promoted through PSHE lessons and Collective Worship.
  • Class decisions are made using democratic voting.
The Rule of Law

We believe in ourselves.UN CRC Article 19: Governments should ensure that children are properly cared for, and protect them from violence, abuse and neglect by their parents, or anyone else who looks after them.
  • We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy. There are rewards for exhibiting good behaviour. Consistent demonstration of our values is recognised through the award of House Points.
  • Through our Collective Worship, Circle Time and PSHE, children are taught how to earn trust and respect and are supported to develop a strong sense of morality; knowing right from wrong and doing the right thing even when it’s difficult.
    • Year 2 – Who is in charge
    • Year 6 – Rights, Respect, Responsibility and the Law
  • The Community Police Officer regularly visits the school and talks to the children to explain their role in society.

    • Year R: Me – A Special Person
    • Year 2: In someone else’s shoes
  • Children are encouraged to take opportunities to follow their interests in art, music, sport etc.
