Promoting British Values at Hedon Primary School

At Hedon Primary School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through our ‘School Rules’ which infuses the ethos and work of the school.

All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering the understanding of these concepts and, in particular SMSC, RE and PSHE. This provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.

The school makes considerable effort to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience both within and beyond their own local community – during which these concepts are shown through for example, sporting events, visits to the local church, events such as the Big Sing and through weekly singing and assembly. Equally through elaborating and embracing different cultures.

Their strong rooted value based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
