Promoting British values at Freegrounds Infant School
As a Rights Respecting School we believe that...
'Every child has the right to an education. Infant education must be free. Discipline in schools must respect children's dignity' Article 28.
'Education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full' Article 29
At Freegrounds Infant school we enrich children’s learning to prepare them to become successful, global citizens through the promotion of British Values and the development of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural understanding and attitudes.
In 2011 the DfE reinforced the 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, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs ” . At Freegrounds we actively promote these values through our own school values and through an exciting curriculum.

They help us with our social, spiritual, moral and cultural development and they are teaching us how to be confident, happy and successful global citizens for the future.
