Holy Family Catholic Primary School
“We are proud that Catholic schools promote values that are both Catholic and British, including: respect for the individual, democracy, individual liberty, respect, tolerance and inclusiveness. Our schools promote cohesion by serving more ethnically diverse and poorer communities. Catholic schools provide high standards of education which are popular with parents from all social, economic and faith backgrounds.”
Paul Barber (Catholic Education Service 15 December 2014).
‘Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding because it is promoted across all subjects and all parts of the school day.’ Ofsted May 2012Our Catholic ethos, which includes explicit reference to Christian and British values, makes a tangible difference to the way we work together and with our wider communities. Within this framework it would be impossible to overlook the government’s view of British values expressed as ‘democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.’ The examples that follow are an indication of some of the many ways we seek to embed British valuesat Holy Family Catholic Primary:
‘Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are extremely polite and considerate around school and engage themselves fully during lessons, including when working independently. Pupils feel a sense of ownership and take pride in their school.’ Ofsted May 2012
The Rule of Law and Individual Liberty
Pupils have a well-developed awareness of different types of bullying and demonstrate strong feelings about such behaviour. Bullying in all forms is virtually non-existent and excellent procedures are in place to deal with incidents swiftly and effectively. Ofsted May 2012Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs This is achieved through equipping pupils with the ability to develop positive values, understand their own beliefs and their place in a culturally diverse society. KS2 pupils experience a connection with other cultures and beliefs with visits to places of worship of other world faiths. The emphasis on enterprise, working with others, and learning other languages directly contributes to the appreciation of others perspectives on life. Our RE curriculum follows the teaching of the Church in providing a broad and balanced education, which includes an understanding of and respect for people of other faiths or none and other religions, cultures and lifestyles.
Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
