British Values

Promoting British Values through our BRAVE curriculum

The DfE highlighted the need to ‘create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs’.

These principles are promoted at Beaufort Primary School by giving our pupils a sense of belonging both in school, the wider community and the country in which they live.  We believe that our pupils should acquire knowledge of both the past and the present which informs them of how British values have been shaped.  We ensure our pupils gain a sense of enjoyment and curiosity in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.

 

At Beaufort we are very proud to have a BRAVE curriculum and we promote Modern British Values through our Values based curriculum.

B Brilliant Beaufort Minds – our school and curriculum supports positive Social, Emotional and Mental Health for every individual. Our children are taught to be self-aware and self-regulate as well as being conscious of the needs of others.  We want our children to be aspirational, resilient and learn from mistakes.

R Relationships – We value opportunities to develop empathy; the importance of co-operation and collaboration; learning to debate and compromise; and treat each other with kindness. These are our foundations of daily practice in school. 

A Amazing Attitudes – our curriculum underpinned by our School and British Values where a focus on culture, sports and the arts provides a wider knowledge of the world and supports our children in finding their place in society and how they relate to it. We teach local and global environmental awareness so that children have a better awareness of understanding their role in conserving the Earth’s finite resources through a more sustainable lifestyle.

V Vocabulary – our children will explore the world through words and know that reading for knowledge and pleasure gives us the POWER to succeed

E Everybody – everybody matters, everybody is included, our differences are celebrated. Children at Beaufort develop a strong sense of identity. They are provided with the tools to be self-aware and are taught the value of diversity and heritage.
