At Whitefriars Junior School, we have a responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide an opportunity for pupils to understand these concepts and, in particular, our RE, SMSC, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities for all pupils to deepen and develop understanding. They embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
The school makes considerable efforts to ensure that all pupils have exposure to a wide ranging experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, for example, through sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
