At Cassop Primary School we aim to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.
Through our curriculum and spiritual, moral, social and cultural education we 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.
This ensures that the next generation understands the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
Understanding and knowledge covered by our curriculum and learning opportunities include:
- an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process (through our School Council, School Sports Crew and UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools work)
- an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law (through the teaching of RE following the local authority framework and UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools work)
- an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour (through the teaching of RE, following the local authority framework, PSHE including circle time and assemblies and UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools work)
- an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination (through whole school assemblies, UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools work and community involvement)
