Social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning

Democracy:

Children at Normanton Common Primary Academy are involved in democratic processes, voting for school councillors from reception to year 6- Each class have representatives and makes decisions democratically on behalf of their peers.

The school council is facilitated by a member of school staff. Regular weekly meetings are held an agenda is set and democratic processes are followed.

We have links with the local police and PCSOs who come into school and educate our children about upholding the British law. This is supported with our links with Normanton Town Council and the Waterton Children's Parliament.

 

The Rule of Law:

Our school rules and rights and responsibilities framework are the backbone of our school community. CHildren are taught how these guide us to make great behaviuor and learning choices for ourselves and for the school community.

We have links with the local police

We have a clearly structured behaviour policy, which all stakeholders understand and follow.

We regularly review behaviour incidents in school and share these with key stakeholders.

Safety awareness and E-Safety awareness are a focus of assemblies and cross curricular work.

 

Individual Liberty:

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced at Normanton Common Primary Academy children are taught through our whole school agreement.

Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind rules and laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police, Road Safety, Bike-ability and the fire service reinforce this.

 

Mutual Respect:

Mutual respect is at the heart of our values. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community treat each other with respect. This is clearly seen in our rights and responsibilities displays, which are clearly displayed in every classroom and taught as part of our PSHE curriculum.

 

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs:

At Normanton Common Primary Academy We actively promote diversity through our celebrations of different faiths and cultures. Religious Education lessons and PSHE lessons reinforce messages of tolerance and respect for others. Members of different faiths and religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.
