Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is "right" and "wrong", all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
After lots of organising and meetings, our school met with John Cowen to help with the Community Wild Flower Project. The children met with John Cowan who has been leading the project within the community to help plant plug plants which had been supplied from Cumbrian Wildlife Trust.
We all planted one plant each from a section of red campions, yarrow and red clover in class groups. Our six reception pupils were supported by our Y6 pupils whilst planting.
It was lovely to also receive an email from John later in the evening to thank the children and compliment them on their manners and behaviour.
Our nursery pupils supported the project by using seeds sent to school for the coronation of King Charles III. We now have wild flower planters at the front of school and will watch out for these growing over the next few weeks.
