At Redhill we support opportunities for all members of our school community to reinforce the ownership of ‘Being British’. Pupils, parents, staff and Governors recognise that we are held together by the shared human values of respect for others, freedom of expression, democracy and rule of law.
We understand that everyone is different but celebrate our school diversity as a strength, not a weakness. Children learn that information can be distorted to try to influence others and are encouraged to think for themselves and question the facts before making assumptions. The promotion of intolerance and disrespect has no place within our community.
As a Rights Respecting School we aim to follow British Values alongside our own School Values to ensure that we promote Article 29: Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
Talking British Values
Every week or two, Mr Cicinski sends out a document to all teachers and parents with the areas of British Values that we have looked at in our class assemblies alongside videos and other opportunities for discussion in school during Community Time sessions or with parents at home.
British Values Lead
If you have any questions about British Values and how they are promoted across our curriculum, please feel free to get in touch with Mr Cicinski either through Class Dojo or by contacting the school office.
