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 Norwood Green Infant School we promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils and through this demonstrate our commitment to fostering fundamental British values.
By establishing a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout the school, and providing relevant activities beyond the classroom, we ensure pupils’ SMSC development. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.
At Norwood Green Infant & Nursery School we serve a rich and diverse community, and take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, generate a respect for difference and individual rights seriously.
It is expected that our children should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. The school’s ethos, curriculum and teaching support underpin traditional British Values.
