In accordance 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.
Our school rules ensure that all children feel safe and secure and introduced to the British Value 'Rule of law'.
Through a variety of social, moral, spiritual and cultural (SMSC) lessons and assemblies children begin to learn about British Values. The children at John T. Rice Infant and Nursery School are taught further British Values through the Jigsaw scheme of work.
