British Values Statement
Christ the King RC Primary School has always covered British values in the school curriculum and throughout the ethos of the school. Children are taught Gospel values through explicit religious education, the ethos of the school. Gospel values encourage children to love everyone as they are made in the image and likeness of God. That is every person is a child of God and therefore we must treat them with respect, love and tolerance.
Democracy is covered by the elections of school councillors to the School Council. These children represent their class for a whole year. They meet with the Head at least once a month to discuss issues arising from the children, staff, parents and the wider community.
The children are encouraged to take a leading role in important decisions to improve school life and learning.
Rule of Law
Our children are taught the value and reasons behind school rules. We use restorative approaches following any incidents when people have been hurt either verbally or physically. Our positive behaviour policy is reviewed annually by staff, children, parents and governors. We have a very clear Mission statement and children are taught
“Christ at the heart of all we do”.
This encourages children to live their life as Jesus Christ would have done and follow Gospel values.
Pupils are taught to make individual choices following the teachings of Jesus Christ. We have a very clear code of conduct and mission statement and a very strong emotional well being programme which encourages children to keep them themselves safe both online and in the community. We have high expectations of good behaviour and any issues which arise are dealt with through Circle time in class or whole school assemblies.
Children are encouraged through our school mission statement, circle time, thought for the week and seal assemblies to have mutual respect for each other.
Through our comprehensive religious education we learn about other religions and faiths.
Tolerance of those of different faiths
The majority of children at our school are Catholics. In RE lessons children are taught about different faiths and cultures. Children are taught to be respectful towards all others who have different faiths.
