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.

Values Afternoon - Pride

posted 27 Apr 2019, 04:37 by Gillian Thornicroft

This term, our Values Afternoon was based on Pride. Each class learnt about a different aspect of this value and then shared their learning in assembly. 
EYFS children read 4 stories and they thought about what each character was proud of. They also thought about what they were proud of. 
Year 1
Year 1 children thought about how they could be proud of themselves and others. 
Year 2
Year 2 children thought about how everyone is different and everyone has something to be proud of. They embraced and celebrated differences. 
Year 3
Year 3 children wrote on Proud Clouds. They also read a story about an exclamation mark who wanted to be a full stop. The story taught them about how being different is something to be proud of. 
Year 4
Year 4 children thought about being proud of their school. They wrote poems about what is good about our school. They also thought about celebrity talents and about 'trolling'. People 'troll' others because they are jealous rather than celebrating other people's talents. 
Year 5
Year 5 children made a Proud Book. They shared their writing about how they were proud of themselves and other people. 
Year 6
Year 6 children learnt about Gay Pride and LGBT. They read a book about Harvey Milk and the origins of the Rainbow Flag.
