British values are an integral part of the GLPA curriculum. Every day, good British values are modelled not only by the staff but also by the children.
We agree that the main values we hold dear are:
Democracy Individual Liberty Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs Rule of Law Mutual Respect
However, this week, we have decided to celebrate these values, look more at people who promote those values and participate actively in those values.
There are special activities happening across the academy and by the end of the week, you can see what has happened in each class on their blogs.
As an academy, we agreed that we were going to do the following as well:
Academy Council Elections- The children will nominate, prepare speeches and vote on their class representatives. This is democracy in action!
Inspirational British Citizens across history! This is exciting and we are learning about everyone from Mr Tumble to Stephen Hawkings!
GLPA is a very charitable academy. So, a good, old fashioned Harvest Festival where we collect food and non-perishables is another important part of the week. All items donated will go to the needy in the community!
By practicing good British values, we become skilled in ensuring readiness to play a positive role in their community.
