British Values

School and British Values

At Flakefleet we pride ourselves on our British Values. These are:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance
  • In school we try our best to work towards these values – our behaviour, attitude towards learning and towards others, and our belief in ourselves reflects these key values.

The British Values curriculum is linked closely to our school values that form the core of our PSHE curriculum. Some examples are listed below.

Mutual Respect and Tolerance

Throughout the year we take part in different activities and celebrations in order to develop our knowledge and understanding of the world. We learn about historical events and people in order to gain a deeper understanding of our history. These events include Chinese New Year, WW2, The Great Fire of London, and Martin Luther King Jnr Day among many others.

 

Rule of Law

At the beginning of each year the children form their own class rules – a class charter –, which is agreed upon and signed by each child in the class. The children know their own boundaries – decided by the children, for the children! Each child tries their best to keep to the class charter, which is displayed in each classroom.

 

Democracy

Our school council elections at the start of the year are an exciting time, where the children campaign to be selected to represent their class. The children then make their vote, posting their choice into the ballot box. Our school council children are confident, motivated, good listeners and proactive!

Our children are encouraged to celebrate the achievements of others, and are able to put their peers forward for our ‘Force Flakefleet Award’, which children receive for doing something kind and helpful without needing to be asked.

Each half term we have a different theme – these include ‘Aim High’ and ‘We are Flakefleet’. Throughout the half term we might have visitors who come to speak to us, or different events taking place which relate to the theme at that time.
