British Values and PHSE
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
PSHE - Physical, Social, Health Education
PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils.
The Programme of Study for PSHE and British Values at Millfield aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking. The objectives, for both subjects, are delivered through weekly discussions groups in KS2 and circle times KS1. The core principles are embedded in our ethos and can be seen to be delivered across a range of different subjects and topics. Regular assemblies support with ensuring full coverage of the curriculum as well as school visits, specific celebrations and awareness days, across the academic year.
