Promoting British Values at Alverstoke Infant School

The government agenda to promote the five British values is supported by our own school values: Belonging, Respect and Responsibility. These are recognised in our assemblies, in PDL lessons (Personal Development Learning) taught through SCARF, circle times and at other times where necessary or appropriate. 

Tolerance and Respect (linked to our school valueBelonging and Respect)

We try to provide an environment which reflects a multi-cultural society and proactively teach about different faiths, cultures and beliefs. Children learn that they should treat others with kindness and respect at all times.

Democracy (linked to our school value – Belonging and Respect)

Each class votes for two School Councillors to represent them on School Council. In Reception, children are able to vote for their story book of the day. As part of this value we talk about fairness and how to make sure everyone has a voice and that every opinion is valued.

The rule of law (linked to our school value – Responsibility)

Children are reminded that telling the truth is always the best thing to do. They learn that it’s ok to make a mistake but you should always own up when you are in the wrong.  We have four school rules that are

Individual liberty (linked to our school value – Responsibility)

Children learn that they are free to make their own choices, but also have a responsibility to others. They are given small roles of responsibility within the classroom and expected to fulfil these as valued members of the class and school. We recognise children for demonstrating our values in a weekly celebration assembly where they can achieve certificates from their class teacher or a member of SLT.  Whole classes are also recognised for their achievements.
