PSHE - British Moral Values
Democracy is an important value taught explicitly in PSHE at Scissett Middle school. The teaching of PSHE promotes our belief to students that the voice of everyone should be heard. We aim to ensure all students understand that all people living in Britain are subject to laws and that rules need to be followed both in and out of school. Students know and understand that there are consequences should these laws and rules be broken and that laws are there for our protection.
Students are encouraged to make correct choices in lessons knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. We believe that students should be empowered through the development of their self-esteem, self-knowledge and self-confidence. Students are able to exercise their rights, personal freedoms and responsibilities and are advised how to exercise these safely, for example, through our e-safety teaching/assemblies.
Mutual respect is at the heart of our values in PSHE lessons at Scissett. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community are expected to treat each other with respect. Mutual respect is at the heart of PSHE teaching.
Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
We aim to achieve this through enhancing students’ understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society. We learn about tolerance through our work on relationships. This is closely linked to the skills learnt in our RE curriculum.
