Statement on British Values
At Larkholme School we believe in the importance of inclusivity and celebrating everyone for their differences. We follow the British values throughout our school and within our curriculum as we believe they are important to the holistic approach to teaching a child. The British values are democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs (and for those without faith)
By following these values our children will develop:
- An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
- An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
- An acceptance that people having different faiths and beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of discriminatory behaviour.
- An understanding of the importance of identifying and combating discrimination
