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.
Providing a broad and balanced Curriculum:
- Opportunities which celebrate diversity
- Responding to current affairs such as General elections and Royal celebrations
- Learning about our nation and its heritage, for example, Plymouth as a port and in the Blitz, the First World War topic and Remembrance Day, King Charles, Civil War and the history of Leigham Primary
- Famous National people such as Captain Scott, Sir Francis Drake
- Use of our local area
- A sense of community responsibility; working with other agencies such as the police and fire service and supporting local / national charities
- Learning about cultures and faiths; how are we different from one another, and how are we the same?
- Understanding Plymouth as part of a global community; learning about children from across the world.
