Modern Life in Britain
“Acceptance and engagement with 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 pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.” – Ofsted inspection handbook
The Prevent Strategy, defines the British values. These are key to allowing everybody to participate and contribute positively to our society. These values are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
Throughout the day, our Co-op Values and RESPECT programme are a part of everything we do. Our values teach ‘democracy’, ‘working together’ and ‘respect’, which work really well alongside the defined British values. Our broad and balanced curriculum allows the exploration of all of these values, across many different topics and subjects. We also directly link each of our topics to a British value.
Each half term we focus on a particular Co-op Value, we embrace that value with tasks, trips and other activities. These insights and experience give our children real life experiences to why our values really matter. Promoting these values, ensure our children are not only prepared for a life in modern Britain, but they appreciate it too.
