Personal Development

At Gaddesby Primary School we ensure our children have a wide range of experiences that not only enhance our curriculum offer, but prepare them for life beyond school.

British Values

The area of British Values has been fully embedded into our school values and wider curriculum, as well as in more focused sessions in our PSHE and RE curriculums. We ensure our young people leave school prepared for the next stage of their education and, beyond that, life in modern Britain.

Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to it’s law.

The key values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

As a school we have celebrated this learning with our local community, with its ever increasing diversity, who have supported us with this. Below is a list of exciting events we have held so far this year to promote diversity:

  • Diwali Day
  • Queen’s Jubilee
  • Life Education Bus
  • Children in Need

School Council and Rights Respecting Curriculum

Children in our school council are supporting our whole school work on the UNICEF Rights Respecting Curriculum in order to achieve the award. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential. As part of this, the children work with Mrs Ellis to ensure that the whole school community knows about the rights that every child is born with and to ensure that these right are being respected.
