At St. Issey we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families
and wider school community.
We 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.
Our school reflects British values in all that we do. We aim to nurture our
children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring,
democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive
difference to British society and to the world. We encourage our children
to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals,
respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community
and the wider world.
At St. Issey, we actively promote British values in the following ways:
All children are encouraged to debate topics of interest, express their views and make a meaningful contribution to the running of the school on matters that directly involve pupils. Children also have the opportunity to have their voices heard through pupil questionnaires and pupil surveys.The principle of democracy is explored in the curriculum as well as during assemblies and special daysOur school behaviour policy involves rewards which the pupils have discussed and agreed.St. Issey pupils have had active involvement in the selection processes of new staff.
Our school follows ‘Core Rules’, which are integral to our learning and ethos every day.
School rules and expectations are clear, fair and regularly promoted.Pupils are always helped to distinguish right from wrong, in the classroom, during Collective Worship and on the playground. Pupils are encouraged to respect the law and St. Issey enjoys visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service, Ambulance, etc. to help reinforce this message.
The Behaviour and Anti-Bullying policies set out a zero tolerance baseline for any form of aggression, abuse or violence, which extends to pupils, staff and parents and carers.
