At St. Joseph’s we have been exploring three questions as part of our British Values learning—
1. What does it mean to be British?
2. What is it like to live in Britain?
3. What are the values we hold?
Answering these questions has led our learning. We have explored the five fundamental aspects of British Values through a range of activities.
These aspects are -
2. Rule of law
3. Tolerance of different cultures and religions
4. Mutual respect
5. Individual liberty
We have interwoven these five aspects into our British Values lessons, and have also created displays in our classrooms for everyone to promote and engage with British Values and consider how they impact and influence all aspects of our lives. We believe that through educating our children about what it means to be British, they will flourish in participating fully and contributing positively to life in modern Britain as conscientious citizens.
We have extended our learning during times of celebration and reflection, such as Black History Month and Remembrance Day. However, we embed the values in a cross-curricular theme also, such as during Inter-Faith Week as part of the RE curriculum.
