Children will have the ability to be reflective about their own beliefs (religious or otherwise) and perspective on life. They have knowledge of, and respect for, different people’s faiths, feelings and values. They have a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.
Children use their imaginations and creativity in their learning and have a willingness to reflect on their own experiences. Children participate in and respond positively to artistic, musical, sporting and cultural opportunities.
Children are able to recognise the difference between right and wrong and are able to apply this understanding in their own lives. They have respect for the law of England, a strong understanding of right and wrong and can reflect on the consequences of their behaviour and actions.
Children are confident working and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They value what we have in common, as well as what makes us different. They have a genuine willingness to participate in a variety of community events through volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively.
Children have a good understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. All children are provided with the opportunity to be leaders within their classroom, influencing change. Children have an understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures in the school and further afield (local, national and global communities) which is an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain.
Our PSHE curriculum is also planned in a way which promotes the cultural capital of all our children. We enhance our curriculum especially for the most disadvantaged by organising guest speakers and visitors and by organising and celebrating key occasions that promote children’s emotional, social and metal wellbeing. We also provide additional opportunities through our pupil charter listing all of the key experiences our children will have participated within before they leave Bank End Primary Academy.
