All schools have a duty to ‘actively 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.
At Corpus Christi, we think it is very important that our pupils develop a strong sense of Christian values and principles in synchrony with core British values. Through our Imaginative Learning Projects, ‘Life Smart’ programme of study and religious teaching, we equip our children with a mature, respectful and sensitive appreciation for difference and diversity within a multi-cultural and multi-faith society. Children are given opportunities to develop critical personal skills which challenge prejudice and discriminatory behaviour.
We inculcate a deeply embedded appreciation of the values of fairness and democracy through our humanities and PSHE curriculum as well as through our School Council, in which children, have a voice in decision making. Our children are also encouraged to be aware of their links to the local parish, the wider community and Britain as a country, as well as having a global understanding of the world around them.
