Promoting British Values

At Whitefield, 'British Values' mean being a good citizen of our society.  They are about developing an understanding and a respect for all.

Promoting British Values in Our School

.

The DfE have recently reinforced the need:-

 

“to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to 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.”

 

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated by the Government in 2014.

 

At Whitefield Infant School and Nursery, we want our children to become responsible, active citizens who participate in democracy and public life with respect for diversity and a commitment to working towards greater community cohesion. Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship (PSHE&C) is at the heart of our school which emphasises the difference between right and wrong and respecting & tolerating differences in a very diverse and modern Britain. We have planned a curriculum that will enable children to make progress towards these aims. Through engaging lessons using our learning model and appropriate activities, we can give them all a better understanding of themselves and others in the ‘community of communities’ in which they live. We can secure and influence behaviour and attendance and encourage further involvement and commitment to education

We are part of the SWAT Cluster (schools working and achieving together). Our children have had opportunities to spend time with friends from other schools across Burnley and Pendle.

Class 7 visited Wheatley Lane School in Fence, as part of the Building Bridges Project. They enjoyed working with their new friends to create some lovely art work.

British Values are promoted in a number of ways in school.  Check out the classroom links below to see what we have been doing!
This is an example of how 'democracy' was integrated into a lesson in Year 2. The children had to choose from some wallpaper designs they had created and vote for their favourite one. The winning choice was used to create 'wallpaper' for the reading area in the classroom.

Every classroom has rules that the children decide on together at the start of the school year and behaviour systems that they follow
