Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with Different Faiths & Beliefs
Respect is one of the core values of our school. The children know and understand that it is expected that respect is shown to everybody, adults and children alike.
Links and visits are promoted with local faith communities and places of worship. For example, members of different faiths or religions are invited to school to share their knowledge and enhance learning within assemblies and in class.
We offer a culturally rich and diverse curriculum in which all major religions are studied and respected. The unit plans offer children the chance to reflect on our core values and British values.
Pupils are helped to acquire an understanding of, and respect for, their own and other cultures and ways of life. Through the PSHE and RE curriculum pupils are encouraged to discuss and respect differences between people, such as differences of faith, ethnicity, disability, gender or sexuality and differences of family situations.
Staff and pupils are encouraged to challenge prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour. Assemblies and discussions involving prejudice and prejudiced-based bullying have been followed and supported by learning in RE, PSHE and whole school safety studies. Our children are encouraged to work together in a variety of ways, including: inter school competitive sports tournaments, house captains, pupil faith group, playground games.
