British Values

At Nun Monkton we uphold typically British Values. These are discussed, modelled and shared daily through assemblies, PSHE lessons and as issues arrive in daily school life. Below is how we define 'British Values'.

Tolerance - In our school you can see tolerance every day. We don't have a very diverse intake, but children from different backgrounds are made welcome. Differences are acknowledged and celebrated. 

Liberty - Children are aware of their freedoms within school and the responsibilities that come with this. Children have opportunities to choose activities in lessons, playtimes and extra-curricular clubs. Children provide feedback to staff regarding learning.

The Rule of Law - The school rules are applied consistently, with sanctions being proportionate and reasonable, reflecting the British legal system. Children are aware of crime and the law through PSHE and assemblies.

Democracy - You can see democracy in action daily. Our School Council is freely elected and represent the views of their peers. Within lessons, choices are made through democratic means and decisions at playtimes are also decided by a vote.

Respect - Mutual respect is evident throughout our school. Children and adults speak to each other politely and courteously. Where issues arise, children are encouraged to find their own solutions and genuine apologies are given.
