Promoting British Values

Through its curriculum, extra-curricular activities, teaching and learning, Springside Primary School will promote British values. By doing so, we will ensure that all learners understand the values that have traditionally underpinned British society. The teaching of these values will promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We will prepare pupils for life in England where the population has an increasingly rich diversity of backgrounds, origins, beliefs and cultures by promoting the values on which our society has been built. By teaching pupils these values we will help all to become good citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

They left us with an oath and all the children will sign it. The oath will then be displayed where everyone can see it. 

Here is the oath

I will not bully others
I will not stand by while others are being bullied
I will report and deal with bullying whenever I see it …
….because I have....

This week, we have been thinking about keeping safe. We discussed how to keep ourselves safe on the roads during the dark winter nights, we looked at clothing which helps us to be seen. We discussed how to keep ourselves safe whilst 'Trick or Treating' and we also talked about firework safety. We want all our children to stay safe and free of avoidable accidents.

Thank-you to all the families who provided food for our collection this year. We had a lovely service in Christ Church Walmersley. Well done to Year 1 for singing 'Dingle Dangle Scarecrow', to Year 5 for reciting your harvest poem and to Year 6 for your wonderful and clear readings. The food was donated to Bury Hospice which is a charity close to the hearts of some of our staff and parents.
