Promoting British Values
As a school we must ensure we teach and promote British values throughout our curriculum. It is really important that through our PSHCE work we give the children the opportunities to discuss and reflect on key issues.
We have looked at ways we can ensure this is embedded through our curriculum and not just an 'add on'. One way is through promoting local, national and international news items. The idea is that there are four stories each week representing four of the communities that we are part of. At least one story will reflect the assembly/person theme of the week. At least one story will reflect an aspect of the KS2 PHSCE framework.
All stories will give children an opportunity to reflect and empathise with others whilst developing an opinion about key issues. The children then take it turns to blog about the issues they have considered on our school blog.
