Our pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are taught how to exercise these safely, such as in our PSHE lessons and Collective Worship. Collective worship is used to both explore and support the school’s values. By teaching the children how to manage and understand emotions they will be motivated and equipped to:
We promote individual liberty through:
- Choices about learning activities and challenges
- Building resilience
- Choices about their participation in extra-curricular clubs and opportunities
- Opportunities to reflect on their behaviour and choices
- Empowering children to make safe choices through E-Safety, PSHE, Road Safety and Fire Safety lessons
- teaching an understanding of the concept of freedom and choice.
- teaching our RE curriculum, which inculcates values of understanding, tolerance and respect for others, including those of other faiths.
- teaching children an understanding of human rights, in particular the UNICEF rights of the child, through assemblies and class lessons.
- providing our extra-curricular provision, which offers equal opportunities for all children, boys and girls, and children with Special Educational Needs in sport and other areas.
- holding discussions in RE, English and other subjects, which allow children to develop respect for the opinions, values and beliefs of others.
- Dealing with and resolving conflicts evenly and fairly
- Encouraging our pupils to recognise and stand up for their rights and the rights of others
- Understand the value the differences and commonalities between people, respecting the rights of others to have beliefs and values different to their own.
- To respect and value our world, and the things, both material and alive that exist within it.
Children in Year 6 are given key roles and responsibilities such as Play Leaders, Playground Buddies and Reading Buddies.
