Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain – Evidence and Impact
At Stepgates Community School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through our ethos and work of the school. They sit alongside our School Values of:
Respect, Collaboration, Resilience, Integrity, Compassion, Courage, Pride.
Our Family Links Nurturing Programme and all curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering children’s understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, SMSCD, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop their understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond our school and our local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, trips and residential visits and through visiting speakers from a range of religious denominations and groups. Our strong-rooted values-based approach to learning gives children an excellent platform for embracing and celebrating difference.
