Global Citizenship and British Values

Our aim is to develop our children’s critical thinking and enquiry skills through providing a Creative Curriculum that includes the theme of Global Citizenship.
We will look at such things as injustice and inequality in the World as we support our children in their growing understanding of values like tolerance, diversity and respect, all of which are intrinsic to our work based on ‘Fundamental British Values’.

This includes providing children with the opportunity to discuss and think about contentious issues with the intention of enabling our children to make
Informed decisions and act as responsible citizens in our Global Society.

To promote global citizen and British values, as a school we:

• have begun to include in suitable parts of the curriculum, as appropriate for the age of pupils, material on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries;

• ensure that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes, such as the student council and the head boy and head girl team, whose members are voted for by the pupils;

• have held mock elections to promote fundamental British values and provide pupils with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view; and

• use teaching resources from a wide variety of sources to help pupils understand a range of faiths.
