At Kilburn Grange School, we recognise the importance of preparing children for life in modern Britain and promoting values that are an integral part of 21st century British society.
The core British values are: mutual respect and beliefs, tolerance of those with different faiths, democracy, rule of law and individual liberty. These values are promoted and reinforced in school in a number of ways.
We establish a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout the school. We encourage staff, children, parents and visitors to our school to show respect, kindness and consideration to all. We learn with and from one another; creating a school environment that nurtures the whole child and enables each one of us to realise their full potential.
Each half-term we have a focus school value and key festivals, events and memorable dates that are taught and/or marked during whole-school and in-class assemblies. There is also a key charity identified each term as we believe when children take part in charitable events, they learn about responsibility, generosity, helping others, making positive changes and how to engage with the local community as well as national and global issues.
Additionally, we provide weekly Skills for Life lessons (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education and Relationships and Health education) through the 1Decision scheme of work. We teach fortnightly Religious Education lessons and Picture News sessions to discuss the local, national and global current events happening at that time.
Kilburn Grange School recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom and understands the role it has in ensuring that it upholds and promotes fundamental British values. The school accepts admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or none. It follows the policies outlined by BPET regarding equal opportunities, which guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.
The poster below outlines how the British values are promoted as an intrinsic part of our school culture and curriculum.
