At Corfield Infant School we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils, staff and families. We undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning this is a range of curriculum topics which have strong links to British History.
In their time here, pupils will learn about Queen Elizabeth II, The Royal Family, Florence Nightingale and British popular culture. November 11th is always marked by the whole school.
Pupils will also be taught to share values such as tolerance and respect for others, regardless of creed, colour or background. They will be taught to be curious about their world and to appreciate our hard won freedoms and to observe and question unfairness wherever they meet it. They will also celebrate our nation’s historical strengths in these areas.
Other occasions which bring the nation together are also marked by appropriate events, such as special assemblies introducing national and local news items (eg about Royal babies or Sporting achievements).
On a more general level, the school undertakes daily assemblies which uphold traditional values of empathy, respect and tolerance. These are also taught within PSHE and RE lessons and on an informal nature throughout the school day.
In their words and deeds, our pupils, staff and Governors strive to promote the values which set a standard for all to live by in Britain.
