British Values are World Values:
At St. Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School, we develop and promote British Values throughout our school and within our curriculum.
A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain. By growing up to value the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs then our children will not only become valued and valuable British citizens but will be valued and valuable World citizens.
British Values = World Values
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs
To do this our children will develop;
- An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
- An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
- An acceptance that people having different faiths and beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of discriminatory behaviour
- An understanding of the importance or identifying and combating discrimination
We value and celebrate the diverse heritages of everybody at St. Cuthbert’s. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. In general terms, this means that we celebrate traditions, such as customs in the course of the year; for example, Remembrance Day, Diwali, Hannukah, Harvest Festival, Christmas, Easter, Chinese New Year, Lent, Advent, Firework Night etc. We also value and celebrate national events, this will include the coronation of King Charles II. Additionally, children learn about being part of Britain in our curriculum and what it means to be part of a modern multicultural society.
