Visions and Values
Whiteoak Academy British Values British values underpin our ethos and curriculum, “Growing and learning together. Aspiring to excellence.” We encourage all members of our school community to demonstrate these values.
The Key British Values are:
rule of law
tolerance of those of different faiths
You will see British Values being promoted in many different ways in the Whiteoak Academies both holistically across the curriculum and discretely taught. Examples include:
An RE curriculum that teaches about the beliefs and practices of major religions.
A PHSE curriculum in which children can explore, question and develop their understanding of these values and what they mean to us in school and within the wider local and global community.
A comprehensive collective worship programme focusing upon faith narratives and moral values.
A behaviour policy exemplifying easily stood golden rules and expectations.
In the 19/20 academic year we have registered to work towards the BIG award promoting anti bullying and respect for all.
An active School Council to facilitate pupil voice and a House Point system with pupil elected representatives.
In Year 6 a challenging study focussing upon World War 2 and an opportunity to investigate a period of time when British Values have been tested.
Anti Bullying and On line Safety “weeks” exploring the importance of safety and respect of others online.
Cross academy focus to raise profiles of British Values e.g. Only One You installation to welcome visitors and Grow Respect display.
A deep rooted foundation that as a school community together everyone achieves more (TEAM).
