British Values Statement
At Cobbs Brow Primary School we promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, which permeates through the school’s curriculum and supports the development of the ‘whole child’. This development is most successful when those values and attitudes are promoted by all the stakeholders and provide a positive model of behaviour for our children.
Democracy is embedded at the school. Children are always listened and responded to by adults and are taught to listen carefully and with concern to each other, respecting the right of every child to have their opinions and voices heard. Children also have the opportunity to air their opinions, ideas and make choices through our school council. This is extended to the wider community through our town Pupil Parliament.
Rule of Law:
The Rule of Law promoted through teaching is that we are all governed by rules that have to be obeyed in society. We provide an orderly and caring atmosphere for learning and teaching to take place. Children are taught from an early age that the school has rules and why they are important to keep everyone safe. They are rewarded for good behaviour and taught about the consequences when rules are broken. This is also reinforced in the teaching of RE and PSHCE.
