British Values

Teaching and promoting British values at Cotmanhay Junior School.

 

At Cotmanhay Junior School we promote the fundamental British values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty and
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

 

These values are important within our school community and will be important throughout life. In all that we do we strive to share, encourage and demonstrate positive values with our children, in order that they understand them and strive to live by them.

We aim to achieve:

  • a welcoming working environment
  • positive behaviours and attitudes
  • high standards of achievement
  • a calm, purposeful ethos and positive relationships and
  • a learning experience that enable children to develop as reflective and responsible learners.

 

We are committed to the development of positive community links and the prevention of extremism and radicalisation both within our school’s physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments. We are also committed to responding to community concerns or local disturbances in a positive way which supports British democratic society.

We believe that sharing our values with parents, carers and our community is essential in supporting the children through their journey in school and life.

 

We share with our community through our school website, newsletters, school assemblies and inviting parents and carers to meetings and open mornings.
