Promoting British Values and Citizenship in our Curriculum

Our creative curriculum aims to deliver a twenty-first century education that will equip our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens. These skills are embedded into all aspects of the curriculum and are also taught discretely through our PSHE and RE programmes of study.  We are also very proud to be a UNICEF Rights Respecting Gold Award School.

We have a very active Pupil Voice programme which promotes our children’s right to be heard and express their views. We value our pupils’ opinions and work together with the community to make a positive difference at every opportunity. Please visit our Pupil Voice page to find out more information about the fantastic work carried out by our elected pupil leaders.
