British Values at Sutton CP

At Sutton CP School we promote the British Values of:

  • democracy
  • rule of law,
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

We understand the importance of our pupils developing a strong set of values and principles that question and understand what it means to grow up in British society. Through a rich and challenging curriculum, and through a focus on key events in British History  we invite pupils to reflect upon their role in a diverse, multicultural and multi faith society.

We equip pupils with a mature, respectful and sensitive appreciation for difference and diversity. In discussing what it means to be British, children engage critically with stereotypes and prejudices and develop an understanding of how we can celebrate our heritage and home cultures whilst also embracing the ties that bind us together.

Our curriculum also casts a light on global citizenship and the rule of law, including the role of democratic advocacy for change. Our pupils take part in many pupil groups that promote British Values.

Our school is enriched by the faith within our community, and we teach an inclusive and all embracing Religious Education curriculum which  teaches pupils about the beliefs and practices of all major religious groups, and the shared values that religion can promote in synchrony with core British values.

Our schoool promotes community cohesion, respect for difference and individual rights and our curriculum enables pupils to recognise the valuable role that they play as emerging citizens in British society.
