Here at Carleton Park we recognise the multi-faith and multi-cultural make-up of the United Kingdom, and we believe it is important to promote the inclusive values which make Britain great.
We are a truly inclusive school. We welcome all pupils entitled to education under British Law, whatever their faith, ethnicity, gender, political viewpoints, sexuality or gender.
Here are some of the ways we seek to promote British values at Carleton Park:
- Our School Council is elected by the children, giving them a voice in decision-making.
- Children have helped to change and shape our Behaviour Policy, and set up the Parent Council too.
- Magistrates, MPs and local counsellors have all visited the school to meet and talk to the children.
- Children have made visits to Westminster.
- Children help choose the charities which the school supports.
- The school is clear on the importance of rules and laws, from classroom to country.
- We have a clearly structured Behaviour Policy which everyone at school understands and follows.
- Wherever possible, children are given the chance to put right things that have been done wrong.
- Behaviour in school is regularly reviewed at our staff meetings.
- We have good links with the local police, and officers visit the school for assemblies focused on the law, on subjects like safety awareness and e-safety.
- Children have key roles and responsibilities in school, such as School Council Leaders, Buddies, Librarians, Healthy Tuck Shop Assistants, Eco Warriors and Playground Leaders.
- Through our extra-curricular clubs, children are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.
- We teach Religious Education (RE) in each year group. Our RE curriculum offers a broad and balanced education on a range of faiths and cultures.
- We celebrate festivals from other cultures and faiths such as Chinese New Year, Diwali and Hannukah.
