British Values

Introduction.

As of September 2014, the DfE requires all schools to promote the historical and current values that underpin the national identity known as being British. Within this, all schools are required to ensure that the curriculum actively promotes these fundamental British values.

What is ‘Britishness’?

Fundamental British values are defined by the Dfe as;

Democracy: Respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process

The rule of law: Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England

Individual liberty: Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law

Mutual respect and tolerance: Support for equality of opportunity for all and respect and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs.

British Values Policy: OLGH british-values-policy-2015

 

Music: Music is taught as part of the curriculum in the classroom by the class teacher. There is also music tuition available to our Key Stage 2 pupils which is taught by peripatetic music teachers.

As a school, we are also able to offer tuition to a number of Key Stage 2 pupils, but not all, in all Key Stage 2 classes. The instruments on offer at the moment are clarinet and flute.

Payment for Woodwind Tuition is made directly with tutor.
