Grange Primary Academy takes its duty to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of pupils seriously, including the duty to promote British Values.
Our school has a distinctive identity and ethos, popular with parents and families, where the development of social, spiritual and emotional intelligence is as important as academic achievement.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of it’s values: Be Kind, Be Responsible, Be Ready and Be Proud
The school mission statement, ‘Nurturing achievement and aspiration in the heart of the community` and the school values underpin all of the work that we do at Grange Primary not only through all the subjects of the curriculum but also through the ethos of the school and through the development of positive attitudes to learning and behaviour
At Grange Primary Academy, we promote fundamental British values through our school values, ethos, the curriculum and through spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We reinforce and promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We prepare our children for life in modern Britain by equipping them to be responsible, respectful active citizens who contribute positively to society.
The term ‘British values’ might be slightly misleading in that these values are integral to so many countries throughout the world. As with our school values, we prefer to use the term world values or human values.
