British Values and SMSC

At Withinfields, we recognise the importance of developing children's skills outside those linked with academic subjects.  We therefore promote British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.  This is in tandem with our own school values of Trust, Happiness, Fairness, Forgiveness, Respect and Friendship.  British values are recognised as Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs, Democracy and The Rule of Law.

Our assemblies relate to each of the British Values at least termly and are enhanced by other activities across the school and in particular classes.  We democratically elect the School Council to develop children's understanding of this important process.  We have ensured that our curriculum includes learning relating to different faiths and beliefs including visits to a range of local places of worship.  We encourage children to appreciate that we are all unique.  We teach children about historic events which did not allow for individual liberty and compare to the present day.  Our behaviour system relates directly to our school values and develops their understanding of the Rule of Law.

We are proud of the work that we do to promote all values and collate photographs and pieces of work in a scrap book which can be found in the entrance area.
