At Wroughton we centre children’s education around not only their academic progress but their progress as individual people and citizens. We offer a wide range of experiences and activities that, combined with our general school policies, promote each child’s personal development of the core values needed to be a successful and valuable member of our society. We will:
- Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
- enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
- encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
- enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
- further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures
- encourage respect for other people, and
- encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England
- encourage respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.
We believe in educating the children in our care to be good citizens and to develop the skills they need to have a successful and productive life.
We provide a broad and balanced PSHE, Citizenship, RE and SMSC curriculum which explicitly teaches the children the importance of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths.
