Beoley First School - addressing the Prevent Duty
At Beoley First School British Values are promoted in line with our approach to educating 'the whole child'. Children’s opinions are valued and the pupil voice is encouraged in class, in community events and as part of regular pupil interview sessions. Children are taught to respect their school, local and global environment, the beliefs of others and the viewpoints those around them.
Through a broad, balanced and tailored SMSC curriculum, which supports the development of the whole child, children are taught about their own and other’s faiths, beliefs and cultures. This provides them with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make informed choices and make decisions regarding their actions and attitudes to ensure they can make a positive contribution to our modern British society.
This SMSC provision is also taught through regular outdoor learning opportunities, Circle Time, PSHE, RE lessons and Collective Worship themes based on Values suggested by all stakeholders in our school community. British Values are further developed through a number of community links with different schools and Pupil Voice groups, enabling children to be involved in a democratic process following the rule of law.
