Pupils and staff at Larks Hill are committed to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural values that promote tolerance, understanding and respect of everybody in the school and in the wider community.
The school actively promotes the 'British Values', which are the values of:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
Larks Hill strives to promote British Values by providing opportunities which will enable our pupils to:
- Develop and demonstrate an understanding of the values which underpin life in modern day Britain.
- Value democracy, respecting the viewpoints of others, having a voice and standing up for right against wrong.
- Learn to uphold the rule of law and support freedom, justice and equality.
- Value and respects people's differences.
- Have a mutual respect, tolerance for and an understanding of the various faiths and beliefs represented in Britain today.
- Understand and value the rich diversity that other citizens from different cultures, religions and backgrounds bring and contribute to our society.
- Develop an awareness and tolerance of communities different to their own.
- Show empathy and care for the poor, the sick, the old, the weak and vulnerable as valued members of our society.
- Become loyal and patriotic citizens of the United Kingdom.
All staff are responsible for taking every opportunity to promote British Values through the curriculum, planning, enrichment activities, resources and school displays. All adults act as role models for our pupils.
Pupil discussions regarding British Values take place in the classroom, assemblies and during school council meetings.
The British Values are on display throughout the school and provide a constant reminder of the expectations for both children and adults.
