British Values

British values

At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford, we promote an inclusive environment where we guide our pupils to reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and co-operate consistently.

To capture this and to give real life scenarios to our Fundamental British Values, every Monday in a whole school assembly, we pose a question of the week to get us all thinking, discussing and debating current news headlines. These questions help our pupils, staff and parents to think about right and wrong (and when something is not quite that simple!), form opinions and make credible arguments for or against something. This helps to broaden minds by thinking about the bigger picture in lots of different situations locally, nationally and globally.

In addition to assemblies, within our school, we promote each of the Fundamental British Values in the following ways:

Democracy:

  • School Council, Eco-Council and House Captains are voted in by the school community.
  • Subject Ambassadors are chosen through application process and interviewed.
  • Children are taught how democracy works as young as EYFS and takes place within the PSHE curriculum.
  • Pupils are taught the importance of their opinion and voice, as well as how they can influence decision-making through the democratic process.
  • Within the wider curriculum, pupils learn about democracy through past and current movements including the Civil Rights Movement and Black Lives Matter.
  • Pupils are actively involved in decision-making processes through the Junior Leadership team and the use of suggestion boxes.
  • Specific oracy skills are taught to help pupils to express their views.

Rule of Law:

  • Ensure school rules and expectations are clear and fair.
  • Class rules and celebration of adhering to these rules.
  • Help pupils to distinguish right from wrong through peer mediation and self-reflection.
  • Children learn about rules and governance within the PSHE curriculum.
  • Pupils are able to make the link between school rules and the use of societies rules to needed to protect.
  • PSHE curriculum and assemblies routinely cover the effects of peer pressure and how to avoid this.
  • Year 6 Gang prevention workshop.

Individual Liberty:

  • Support pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem, self-confidence through pupil voice, oracy skills and time to talk.
  • Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour, as well as knowing their rights.
  • Challenging stereotypes is taught through our career’s education programme and PSHE.
  • A zero-tolerance approach to anti-bullying and anti-racism.
  • E-Safety units of work are taught throughout school in computing and PSHE.
  • Weekly e-safety information provided for parents within the weekly newsletter.

Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Beliefs and Culture:

  • PSHE curriculum.
  • Our RE scheme ensures that our children have a good understanding of a range of religious beliefs and customs.
  • Use of the Picture News resources.
  • Challenging prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.
  • Visits to local places of worship.
  • Year groups cover festivals such as Diwali, Eid, Christmas and Easter.
  • Our RE scheme ensures that our children have a good understanding of a range of religious beliefs and customs;
  • Children are supported to acquire an understanding of, and respect for, their own and other cultures and ways of life;
  • Use of the Agree, Build and Challenge (ABC) oracy approach to disagree in a respectful way with the answers of others whilst in class.
