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.
The Key Values are:
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
To celebrate the value of democracy and to ensure that the children understood how this works in our country we delivered a series of assemblies about the 2019 general election. In these we discussed what an election is as well as the key party leaders and policies proposals.
Every child in the school then had the opportunity to vote in a Churchfield election, choosing from the main political parties.
And the winner was....a hung parliament!
Labour - 38%
Liberal Democrats - 22%
Green Party - 19%
Conservatives - 18%
Brexit - 3%
