British Values

Welcome to our British Values page. Mrs Crawford is the lead teacher for British Values across the school. She plans and delivers lessons to all year groups on a rota system to prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.

The five core values British people aim to promote are outlined below. 

  • Democracy 
  • Rule Of Law
  • Tolerance Of Other Cultures And Beliefs
  • Mutual Respect
  • Individual Liberty

At The Arches, the British values are embedded within day to day life and are values particularly linked to many of our school values of citizenship, freedom, equality and fairness. Pupils learn about the values through assemblies, opportunities that arise in class, through lessons with Mrs Crawford and SMSC occassions. 

Pupils may also learn about government and law, particularly in Year 6. Over previous years, Y6 pupils have visited London and learned more about the political presence within our capital city. 

Our school is aware of the need to be vigilant when it comes to any extremist attitudes or behaviour and appropriate actions will be taken accordingly. All staff are aware of the need to alert the Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body if they have any concerns of this nature and have all received training on such extremism.

Autumn Term 2 2023

The British value we are focusing on is The Rule of Law. Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 are looking at the story of The Little Red Hen and throughout Key Stage 2, children are focusing on rules of games.
