It’s been a busy day on the farm today with the pupils visiting the bees. Dressed up in their overalls and head guards they were well protected as they went to farm the honey. https://t.co/w9M1SJ2Fcr

Today’s mission, which they chose to accept, was to cook a rhubarb crumble! It will be interesting to see how much of it is left by the end of dinner time. https://t.co/tv9LUuehYz

The children take turns cooking for each day - today the mission was Cornish pasties. How do you think they did? Do we have any budding Greggs pastry chefs in our midst? https://t.co/7V08gFeIfN

British Values

The Department for Education state that there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to 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.”

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values were reiterated by the Prime Minister in 2014. At HPAO these values are reinforced regularly in our assembly schedule, through display and in the following ways.

Democracy

Democracy is embedded at the school.  Pupils are always listened to by adults and are taught to listen carefully and with concern to each other, respecting the right of every individual to have their opinions and voices heard.  Pupils also have the opportunity to air their opinions and ideas through our School Council and questionnaires.  The elections of the school council  members are based solely on pupil votes, reflecting our British electoral system and demonstrating democracy in action.

The Rule of Law

The importance of laws, whether they are those that govern the class, the school or the country, are consistently reinforced.  Our school has ‘Golden Rules’, which are deeply embedded in our work every day.  Each class also discusses and sets its own rules that are clearly understood by all and seen to be necessary to ensure that every class member is able to learn in a safe and ordered environment.  Our pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.

Individual Liberty

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.  As a school we educate and provide boundaries for our pupils to make choices safely, through the provision of a safe environment and an empowering education.  Our pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely; examples of this can be clearly seen in our e-safety and SMSC lessons.  Whether it is through choice of challenge; of how they record; of participation in our numerous extra- curricular activities, our pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

Mutual Respect:

The pupils know and understand that it is expected and imperative that respect is shown to everyone, whatever differences we may have, and to everything, however big or small. Children at HPAO regularly raise money for charities; so far we have supported:

Macmillan Cancer Research

Jeans for Genes Day

Children in Need

British Legion

Battersea Dogs and Cats home

Red Nose Day

Tolerance of Those With Different Faiths And Beliefs

Harris Primary Academy Orpington enhances pupils' understanding of different faiths and beliefs through religious education studies. Beliefs, traditions and customs will be studied in depth, with visitors being invited in to our school to enrich and extend understanding.  Through this, our pupils gain an enhanced understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society.
