British Values

At Littleton C of E Infant School we promote British values through our three core values:

Care for Ourselves
Care for Each Other
Care for our World
Through our love of God

The examples below outline the many ways we seek to embed British values at Littleton and reflect our ethos and approach to learning; not an exhaustive list.

Democracy

At Littleton we promote an understanding of the importance of democracy through our focus on Pupil Voice, voting for School Council representatives.

The rule of law

Through our behaviour code (as outlined in our Behaviour Policy) we develop our children’s understanding of the importance of following rules; that they keep us and those around us safe. Children’s self-regulation and understanding that their behaviour affects others and may have consequences is also a crucial part of learning at Littleton. Visits from community partners such as the police and fire service also help to develop our children’s understanding of roles within society.

Individual Liberty

Our children are actively encouraged to develop a strong sense of themselves as a learner. Children are encouraged from an early age to develop their understanding of how to be and stay safe within a secure learning environment.

Children learn boundaries and how to take ‘safe risks’ through our Forest School curriculum. E-Safety, anti-bullying and personal responsibility are linked to ‘Care for our ourselves’ and are developed through an enquiry based curriculum.

Respect

Self-respect and respect for others form a core part of our school value system. This is based on the learning culture we foster. ‘Talk Partners’ develop our children’s capacity to actively listen to the ideas and opinions of others. Children develop fair play through our PE curriculum. Open debate and discussion is encouraged at every level in the school learning community. Our Christian ethos also promotes respect as being a fundamental aspect of adults and children.

Tolerance of those of different Faiths and beliefs

The London Anglican Diocesan mission statement states their schools will be inclusive of the communities they serve by inspiring all children to look at deeper meaning and purpose of life.

Through our rights respecting culture and our Religious Education curriculum we promote tolerance and understanding of a range of faiths, religions and cultures. As a London Diocesan Church school we promote this tolerance and understanding through our Christian values and our daily acts of Collective Worship.
