British Values

British Values.
The Department for Education has recently reinforced the need to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Our Religious Education Programme follows the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus. The pattern of religions taught is as follows: Key Stage 1 Christianity and Hinduism and Key Stage 2 Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism. There are some qualities that are fundamental to RE: Commitment- to a set of values and a positive approach to life. Fairness - listen to and respect the views of others. Respect – those who have different customs and beliefs. Self-Understanding – develop a sense of self -worth. Enquiry – a curiosity and desire to seek the truth. Openness - to develop a sense of awe and wonder.
At Mithian School British Values are reinforced on a day to day basis through what is sometimes known as ‘the hidden curriculum’ and also within the school ethos. The school ethos influences areas of personal development such as forming and maintaining relationships, self- esteem and patterns of behaviour. We also offer regular activities and opportunities to our pupils to promote British Values in a more explicit way. Click on our British Values Statement for more information.
