At Runwell Community Primary School we support the British values of:
The rule of law
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
These values are supported and taught throughout the school as we endeavour to show our pupils by example and through the curriculum what it means to be good citizens and considerate members of both our own and the wider local, national and global community.
We have a limited number of children on roll from minority ethnic, language and faith backgrounds, but this proportion is increasing and all children are taught to understand and appreciate people’s different experiences and beliefs. Children are given the opportunity to hear arguments for both sides of an issue, and to make an informed choice by voting.
We would like all our children to be respectful, curious, responsible, trustworthy, courageous, friendly and loyal members of society, and we promote and celebrate these values in class and in assemblies. Children are expected to learn right from wrong and to respect rules. They are rewarded for good behaviour, for showing consideration to others, and for making a positive contribution to the life of the school. We encourage children to be self-aware and to make good choices, recognising the effect their behaviour has on other people. They are encouraged to believe in themselves and strive to do their best.
