At Bitham Brook Primary School we actively promote British Values, as defined under the Ofsted guidance 2014, through our school vision, curriculum and teaching: ‘… ensure that they and the school promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and support and help, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain…’
Our vision is that children will be the best that they can be in three key areas:-
◾Head – Children as successful learners – who enjoy independent learning and are creative, critical thinkers that make progress and achieve.
◾Heart – Children as resilient individuals – who are confident and articulate, able competitors equipped to engage in the challenges of modern life and are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
◾Hands – Children as responsible citizens – good team members whose efforts contribute to group success, who care for the community and environment, showing mutual respect and tolerance and make a positive contribution to society.
We held a British Values Theme Day on 15th February, when our MP Dr Andrew Murrison visited the school.
