British Values

At Moorside, we promote fundamental British Values of democracy: rule of law; individual liberty; mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

This is done as part of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development which equips them to be thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and in wider society. Our wonderful displays around school show some of the work which has been done.

British Values are discussed and taught either in classroom lessons or in school assemblies.
For example, at Moorside, we ensure all children have a voice through our School Council – known as Pupil Leaders. The children see the democratic process in action by holding class elections to choose their representative. The Pupil Leaders then attend regular meetings; help to support local charities; represent the school at important events and suggest ways to improve their school. 

We recently celebrated British culture by celebrating the Kings Coronation and previously held a Red, White and Blue day in honour of 'Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth' being the longest-reigning Monarch. Also, we promote respect and tolerance of those with different beliefs during R.E. lessons where children learn about different faiths. This includes visits to a local Synagogues, Mosques and Hindu temples.
