British Values at CFS
At CFS we encourage, promote and reflect on the five key British Values of:
· Rule of Law
· Individual Liberty
These underpin key aspects of our School’s values of Nurture, Challenge and Inspire, as well as our curriculum implementation through Cultural Capital and Community.
It is our belief that the British Values are integral our core aim for all pupils to be truly Global Citizens.
The British Values are both implicitly and explicitly developed through our curriculum and co-curricular in the following ways:
· The House System, focusing on Celebration, Community, Competition and Charity
· PSHE curriculum in both Primary and Secondary
· Cultural Capital opportunities - link here
· Primary assemblies.
· Secondary Tutor group assemblies.
· Secondary Tutor Time activities.
· Celebrated displays around the School.
· Through our Culture of Kindness initiative.
· Pupil engagement in the CFS Passport and UniFrog.
· Pupil Voice opportunities – link here
· Pupil Leadership opportunities – link here
At CFS, we encourage healthy and respectful debate and discussion around British Values. For example, a recent discussion has considered whether ‘tolerance is always enough’, and the concepts of greater acceptance and understanding were explored.
Staff are trained annually in the teaching of British Values. Whilst all staff take responsibility for the development of British Values at CFS, as Assistant Principal: All Through Pupil Development and Cultural Capital, Mr Rob Angell leads on the School’s strategy, supported by Mrs Gemma Clark.
