British Values

British Values at Cedars Primary

At Cedars Primary, the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school.

We value the backgrounds of all our pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these alongside other cultures in our country. Our cross-curricular approach to learning provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding, developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. We make every effort to ensure our children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community. We take active opportunities to develop children through an enriched curriculum that is rooted in core values. This we feel gives our children an excellent start to embracing difference. At Cedars Primary we value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as school council members whose members are elected by children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view. Children are given responsibilities and can regularly lead other children in games and activities. We expect all our children to be good role models for each other, which is encouraged through high expectations of attitudes and behavior by following ‘The Cedars’ Way’.
