British Values and Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development
At The Avenue Infant School, we believe children should be tolerant and respectful of each other. As part of our school ethos and through the broader curriculum we aim to develop children spiritually, morally, socially, and culturally.
“Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. "
