British Values at Linton Heights Junior School

At Linton Heights Junior School we take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously. We value the ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these alongside other cultures in our country.

We ensure that the fundamental British values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts. Our cross curricular approach provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of our children.

The schools make considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.

We value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as our school council, whose members are voted for by the children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view.

Children are given responsibility to lead other children in games and activities so that they are fully involved in all aspects of school life. For instance, some of our older children are sports leaders, deputy and house captains – all of whom help to promote our core values.

The Junior Leadership Team apply for the position by writing and letter to the headteacher. Successful candidates attend Senior Leadership Team meetings on a termly basis and advise senior leaders on various aspects of school life including the curriculum, teacher appointments, health and safety and much more.

We expect all our children to be good role models for each other, which is encouraged through high expectations of behaviour.
