At Peases West Primary School we take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
We value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view.
Children are given responsibility to run their own activities and lead other children in games and activities so that they are fully involved in all aspects of school life. For instance, our older children are trained as Sports Crew leaders and help to promote our core values. We expect all our children to be good role models for each other, which is encouraged through high expectations of behaviour.
Our curriculum topics provide children with further opportunity to reflect on our core values and British Values.
Forest School covers all aspects of children’s learning: social development, physical, speaking, healthy lifestyle, understanding and respect.
