British Values

In June 2014, David Cameron emphasised the important role that British values can play in education. Further, how well a school promotes such values is an aspect of Ofsted's inspection.

The Department for Education have said "Keeping our children safe and ensuring schools prepare them for life in modern Britain could not be more important."

The British values are;

At Croxteth Community Primary School we actively promote these values in the following ways through our policies, Code of Conduct, Anti-Bullying, Anti-Racism and equal opportunities at work. In our Curriculum, Assemblies and collective worship we teach respect for all, right and wrong, keeping safe, keeping the law, and difference. In our R.E. work we teach about other faiths and law to respect all. Our work on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is reposted regularly to governors and all staff are aware of our ethos.

The election of the School Council members reflects our British electoral system and demonstrates democracy, in action: pupils made speeches, pupils consider characteristics important for an elected representative, pupils vote using ballot boxes. Made up of two representatives from each class, the School Council meets regularly to discuss issues raised by different classes.

Our curriculum addresses issues raised in the global community and encourages thinking, reflection, debate and discussion.
