At Helmdon Primary School, we develop and promote British Values through all we do.
Our ethos and the key themes running through our curriculum promote the children’s understanding of themselves, others and the world. The themes of the environment, locality and diversity enrich and support our curriculum to be relevant and interesting.
In addition, we ensure our reading stock is varied in its representation of modern life and we seek out opportunities for the children to experience British Values in action, for example, democratic voting or meeting people from different faiths.
“We want every school to promote the basic British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.” Lord Nash
Our vision is to ensure children become valuable and considerate members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
