Mutual Respect & Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
Mutual respect is at the heart of our values and is achieved through enhancing children’s understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. We actively promote and model respect and tolerance by promoting respect for individual differences through Collective Worship, Prayer, the RE curriculum, multicultural, multi-faith weeks and activities and through our ethos. We help children to acquire an understanding of and respect for their own and other cultures and ways of life e.g. through Geography, Religious Education and various enrichment events. We organise visits to places of worship, openly discuss and celebrate the differences between people such as differences of faith, ethnicity, disability, gender and different family situations. All members of the school community treat each other with respect as we actively encourage children to live out our school motto of “Let Your Light Shine” on a daily basis.
We actively challenge childrens, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
