Welcome to British Values
Subject Leader: Mr Pierce
Here at St. Paul's we value and celebrate the heritages of everyone in our school. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. In general, this means that we celebrate traditions and customs in the course of the school year. For example, during the Autumn term we celebrate with a harvest festival, and what could be more British than a visit to a pantomime or performing in a nativity around Christmas time. Our children learn about being part of Britain from different, though specific perspectives. Geographically: Pupils are taught about the landmass that makes up the British Isles. They are taught about British major cities, rivers and the various flags that make up the countries within the Union flag. Historically: Children learn about British history, whether it is life during the World Wars, the Great Fire of London or studying our local area, children learn about an aspect of life and how this has developed and changed over time. We also find out about British inventions and discoveries, advances in medicine or our country’s scientific and technological contribution to the world through our Science and Design Technology focuses across school.
