At Whitwick St John the Baptist, we prepare pupils for life in modern Britain effectively, developing their understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Due to how engrained British Values are into the Christian vision and values of the school, we do not expect pupils to be able to list all of the British Values from memory. However, we do expect them to be able to demonstrate the views and values that show that they are on their journey to becoming safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world.
Therefore, at Whitwick St John the Baptist, we ensure we have a systematic and progressive approach to the teaching of British Values whilst also reinforcing these values through a wide range of opportunities and experiences in school.
Teaching and learning about British Values is fully integrated into our PSHE curriculum (SCARF), through age-appropriate content across the SCARF spiral curriculum
SCARF supports children's spiritual, moral, social, cultural and emotional development, fostering a sense of respect for themselves and others; it promotes health and wellbeing across the school community within a robust PSHE framework. Within this context, it contributes significantly to British Values in their broadest sense both explicitly and implicitly. The focus across the three themes of Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World help to foster and develop in children a responsibility for their own actions; respect for the actions and beliefs of others; an understanding of how each individual is protected by the rule of law; and how everyone can make a positive contribution to society through the democratic process.
Individual lessons which relate directly to the British Values themes (Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance) can be found here,
Further to the PSHE curriculum, here are some of the ways we actively promote British values:
Rule of Law
Mutual Respect and Tolerance
