Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain
At Severnbanks Primary School we take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously.
We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school.
All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
We make great efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting and music events, visits and visitors. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
We started the year focussing on DEMOCRACY. We learnt the meaning Democracy and then used our democratic rights to vote for our school council representatives.
