Promoting British values at Kempshott Infant School

The DfE have recently reinforced the need ‘to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’

The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent strategy, and these values have been reiterated in 2014. At Kempshott Infant School these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways.

Democracy

Children are listened to and are taught to listen carefully to others. Children are taught to respect the right of individuals to have their voices and opinions heard.

Each year the children in each class develop their own class rules charter and sign it to ensure ownership and cooperation.

The school council meets regularly and discusses issues raised in class or as a whole school. Each year two council members are voted for to represent each class.

The rule of law

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school or the country are consistently reinforced at Kempshott Infants.

Pupils are taught from an early age the value of the school rules. Children are taught the value and the reason behind the rules and the laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibility this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.

Individual liberty

At Kempshott Infants, children are actively encouraged to make the right choices, knowing they are in a safe and supportive environment. Children are expected to take responsibility for their own actions and to understand the consequence their actions might have. We educate and provide boundaries for children to enable them to make informed choices, through a safe and supportive environment. The understanding of rights and responsibilities are promoted through the teaching of PSHE and e-safety.

Mutual respect

Mutual respect is a core value at Kempshott Infants. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community treat each other with respect.

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

The school recognises its role in preparing children for life in modern Britain. We actively promote celebrations of different faiths and cultures. The religious education syllabus is the agreed Hampshire County Council syllabus, Living Difference. Through assemblies, RE and personal and social education we reinforce messages of tolerance and respect.

The curriculum

Staff regularly review the curriculum to ensure that it promotes the areas above. It also ensures that pupils are taught about key events and figures in history. Events during the year celebrate culturally diverse occasions and memorable events taking place in the country.

At Kempshott Infant School we will actively challenge children, staff or parents who express opinions that are contrary to fundamental British values including extremists’ views.

 

Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.

Who is eligible?

Any child in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM)
Any child who has previously received FSM in the last 6 years
Any child who is in care or has been “looked after” for more than 6 months
Any child whose parents are serving in the Armed Forces or have served in the Armed Forces in the last four years

How can the Pupil Premium be spent?

Headteachers and school leaders decide how to use the Pupil Premium to meet the particular needs of their disadvantaged pupils, and will also be held accountable for the difference it makes. At Kempshott Infant we monitor the progress and attainment of all children along with particular groups so that we can adjust our curriculum and support to raise standards.

PE and Sports Funding

 

The PE and Sports allocation is funding provided to schools specifically to improve the quality and provision of PE and sports in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sports, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sports and PE for all their children. The funding has been guaranteed for three academic years 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16.

 

Each school can decide how to spend their PE and Sport funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional requirements are needed in order to enhance the provision for PE and sports in their setting.

 

From September 2013, information regarding how the funding is planned to be spent and the proposed impact, must be published on the school website.
