Promoting Fundamental British Values:
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in
school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. At Belgrave,
these values are reinforced regularly and are incorporated into our daily life together.
Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance
and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and
‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
- We believe that our school is a unique place to work and learn. It has an individual identity that combines traditional values with a modern, vibrant vision.
- The children learn about democracy in a range of contexts which are meaningful to them. Our School Council, Pupil Voice and Pupil questionnaires are ways that we provide the experience of being part of a democracy as well as our Parliamentary workshop visit each year for Key Stage Two pupils from UK Parliament.
- The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout the day, as well as when dealing with behaviour.
- 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.
- We value the diverse ethnic background of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. Our No-Outsiders is taught within our curriculum to all pupils at Belgrave.
- Weekly themes / values are introduced in assembly each week and built upon in classes during the week. These include themes such as: compassion, democracy, tolerance, hope or a charity / themed week focus. In 2020 - 21 we raised £2600.33 for a range of charities.
