Individual Liberty

Individual Liberty


Our children are taught to understand that individual liberty sits alongside personal responsibility and both are reflected in the school Christian vision and values statement and behaviour policy, where our children are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour, make the right choices and be the best people they can possibly be. Vulnerable pupils are protected and stereotypes challenged. A strong anti-bullying culture is embedded in the school and any form of bullying is challenged and addressed.   


Through curriculum teaching, pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms 
and are advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our PSHE lessons and whole school safety studies. Pupils have key roles and responsibilities in school, for example: Year 6 house captains, playground friends, class ambassadors and sports leaders. Helping children to understand individual liberty and personal responsibility also comes through weekly celebration assemblies, mentoring sessions, reflection areas in classrooms and displays of Christian values around the school. Home/School agreements are signed by parents and pupils enabling them to reflect on both their rights and responsibilities.
