Rule of Law

Children are taught from an early age the value and the reason behind rules and laws and therefore have the ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong, and to apply this understanding in their own lives and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England. As part of our calendar of events children receive visits from authorities; such as:

  • local Police
  • Fire service
  • NHS

 which helps reinforce this message;

  • Understand the consequences of their behaviour and actions by acceptance of responsibility for their behaviour;
  • They understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality that the school is situated and to society in general;
  • Have an interest in investigating and offering reasoned views about moral and ethical issues, and being able to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues;
  • Our children have a respect for other people, with particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010;
  • Encouraged to demonstrate fair sportsmanship, which in turns, helps them play fairly.
