British Values at Rowde
The Department for Education has published guidance to schools on promoting British values to prepare young people for life in modern Britain. This is at the heart of what we teach at Rowde C of E Primary Academy. We teach and support the fundamental British values of:
The rule of law
Mutual respect and tolerance
These values are embedded throughout our curriculum, our Worship and daily school life.
We live these values as part of our everyday life at Rowde – we have rules and ‘We Are Rowde’ to keep us safe and learning, we choose our Value Champions and or Senior Pupils (democracy), we respect each other’s views and beliefs and treat everyone equally and kindly as part of the Rowde community.
We talk about these values every day, sometimes as part of our PHSE lessons and often as part of Collective Worship and other subjects.
We use Jigsaw PSHE scheme which helps promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Jigsaw contributes, as a good PSHE programme should, to the British Values agenda very significantly, both through the direct teaching of information and through the experiential learning children will enjoy.
The 5 strands of the British Values agenda have been mapped across every Puzzle and every Piece (lesson) which you can see below.
