Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development

Promoting British Values

Corsham Regis Primary Academy has a legal responsibility under Section 78 of the Education Act (2002) to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and to actively promote fundamental British values.Guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) in November 2014 highlights British values as democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

However, all the staff believe passionately that, regardless of any legal requirement, the teaching and development of pupils’ attitudes and values in these areas are fundamental to cohesive living in a modern and diverse Britain.  Consequently, the breadth and depth of the planned curriculum that pupils experience at Corsham Regis ensures that they are able to work together, to be responsive to the needs of others and to respect each other’s beliefs. How do we achieve this you may ask?

Corsham Regis has a very proactive Sports Crew and Academy Council. Look in the ‘Children’ section of the website for details of their activities. Our Religious Education lessons encompass religions, faiths and beliefs from around the world. We hold multi-faith assemblies and theme days to celebrate festivals in the calendar.

Across the curriculum pupils work as teams, not just in Physical Education and sport. 

Through our Behaviour policy and Learn 4 Life curriculum pupils are taught to know the difference between right and wrong, to be tolerant and to be a part of a team. The pupils have also written ‘Our Happy Policy,’ which is their own version of the Anti-Bullying Policy,  

Below you will find an overview of the year for each year group to show how these important values are encouraged and promoted.
