Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In line with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for 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’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
rule of law
tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Our new PSHE Scheme Jigsaw ensures that our curriculum is linked to Key Values, and we are always looking at ways to deliver and reinforce British Values. Here are some examples of how our children get involved.
Year Group Breakdown
At Queen Victoria there are three classes in each year group, apart from the nursery children and Time4Twos who attend part time in either the morning or the afternoon session.
Key Stage 1
Key Stage 2
The internet is a wonderful resource! From finding out information to games the internet opens a whole world for education. We want all our children to be safe online so that they can enjoy the internet. Safety on the internet is called E-Safety – the E stands for electronic!
What we do at Queen Vic:
We are very aware of the issues surrounding the internet and particularly social media at the moment and the problems that can arise as a result. As well as stand-alone events such as Safer Internet Day, children are reminded of internet safety every time they use a piece of technology. They are encouraged to ask any questions and talk to us about their concerns. E-safety is also taught as part of discreet IT lessons in class. At the forefront of this are our newly appointed Digital Leaders – 2 children from each year group who will be doing all sorts: from fetching and setting up equipment to putting on an online safety assembly and showing children (and teachers) how to use a range of hardware and software.
