PSHE, Equality and British Values

“Pupils have a range of valuable opportunities to find out about roles that they may take up in society. Community partnerships give pupils the chance to find out about future jobs and employment. They also have the chance to take a lead on issues in school through membership of the anti-bullying ambassadors group, digital leaders or eco committee. This assists in developing their awareness of civic duty.” Ofsted 2018

Kentmere Academy is incredibly proud of the British Values that it implements within the ethos of the school and curriculum taught. British Values are a crucial component of school life and a key contributor to the social, moral, spiritual and cultural impression that a school can have on young people.

PSHE and Equality is a crucial element of life at Kentmere Academy. Students are introduced to a range of important social subjects such as Sex education, Drug education, E-Safety and the importance of community cohesion. Students are taught the importance of well being and valuing other people’s attitudes, actions and beliefs. We work hard to develop our students’ life skills such as decision making, coping with pressure and an understanding of how to identify and assess risks, both online and in day to day life. All schools teach the importance of equality. If you would like to learn more about equality, please click here to see an easy to understand guide to the 2010 Equality Act.

Democracy

Democracy

Democracy within our school is a key element of our learning of British values. We learn about and experience democracy at Kentmere Academy through voting for the school council, curriculum links to social history, debates, current affairs and working roles to help us understand the origins of democracy from Ancient Greece.

Understanding democracy enables children to develop communication and a healthy respect for the democratic process.

The Rule of Law

The Rule of Law

We learn the rule of law so we can study and learn in a safe environment where everybody matters. We learn the rule of law through our classroom rules, Visits from the police to help us understand how to behave the best we can in public, understanding E-safety and safe activity on the internet, and the importance of respecting the environment and why it is good to be green.

it is crucial that students understand and appreciate the rule of law, both civil and criminal as it helps them to infer what is right and what is wrong.

Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs

Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs

At Kentmere Academy, everyone matters. We learn about all different faiths and beliefs so we can understand them more and appreciate why our tolerance of different faiths is what makes Britain such a fantastic place to live. We help our friends celebrate different festivals such as Diwali, Eid, Hannuka and Easter. We learn all about different religions in our RE lessons and enjoy lots of visits to different places of worship.

Tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions is an important aspect of life in Britain. Further understanding of this enables students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures

Mutual Respect

Mutual Respect

It is important that we respect everybody in our school and our community, regardless. We experience our mutual respect and community through speaking and listening, educational visits, support for people with disabilities, coffee mornings with parents, school - community events and charity work.

Ensuring mutual respect between students enables students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence.

Individual Liberty

Individual Liberty

At Kentmere Academy we celebrate difference and how we can learn how to be the best we can be by celebrating this difference. Our efforts include encouragement for participation in after school clubs, praise for out of school pursuits and competitions. These efforts help everybody to achieve individual confidence, a feeling of safety and pride that within British Values, what makes them unique is important.
