Promoting British Values

Democracy

Each year the children decide upon their class agreement and the rights associated with these. We have a student council which each class votes a member onto. The governors have an annual questionnaire where they ask Year 6 about thier views of the school. The school leadership team is made up of 6 pupils who staff choose and 4 pupil voted for by the children. 

The Rule of Law

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced at Falkland Primary.   Pupils are taught from an early age the rules of the school. These are our Golden Rules, Playground Rules and Safety Rules. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind rules and laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service help reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty

At Falkland Primary, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make informed choices, through a safe environment and an empowering education.  Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our eSafety and PSHE lessons. 

Mutual Respect

Mutual respect is at the heart of our school. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community treat each other with respect. 

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs

Religious Education lessons and PSHE lessons reinforce messages of tolerance and respect for others. At Falkland Primary we promote and celebrate our different backgrounds and beliefs. Tolerance, inclusiveness and mutual respect are at the heart of our aims and ethos. Our Vision of preparing children to make a positive contribution to society drives us towards ensuring that our pupils are able to live and work alongside people from all backgrounds and cultures. This will be particularly necessary in the future where technological advances will make the world a smaller place.
