Our Curriculum Intent- British Values
At Whitefield, 'British Values' means being a good citizen of our society. They are about developing an understanding and a respect for all. British values are very much embedded in our school values, which are the heartbeat of our school.
The DfE have 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.”
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. Our school values and Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship (PSHE) 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
