Promoting Cooperative and British Values

We have a duty to prepare children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. A key way of doing this is to teach our pupils a range of values that will enable them to play their part in a country and a city that is increasingly diverse.

 

Cooperative Values
 

As a Cooperative Academy as part of the Yorkshire & the Humber Cooperative Learning Trust we will ensure that our pupils are taught the values of:

 

  • Self-help – we will help each other for mutual benefit

  • Self-responsibility – we will all play a full part in school life

  • Democracy – we will listen to each other and represent their views

  • Equality – we will respect everyone’s equal rights

  • Equity – we will treat each other justly and fairly

  • Solidarity – we will support each other

  • Ethical Values – we will act with;

    • honesty

    • openness

    • social responsibility

    • care for others
       

British Values
 

As a school we will also uphold the Department for Education’s five part definition of fundamental British Values;
 

  • Democracy – we will learn about how voices are heard and how the people are represented

  • The rule of law – we will learn about how justice is done in the UK

  • Individual liberty – we will learn to uphold our rights and learn how individual views are expressed within the law

  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith – we will learn to respect those who are different from us and to understand their views even if we don’t hold
    them ourselves

These values are taught in lessons and in assemblies, but most importantly in action as we work together day by day and grow to become the best people we can be. Key opportunities that the children of Ings will have to enable these values to grow and develop include;

  • The chance to visit parliament in Key Stage 2

  • The chance to participate in regular debate (AskIt – P4C)

  • The opportunity to elect pupil representatives to School Council

  • The chance to work in teams and other collaborative settings

  • The chance to experience a wide range of cultures in artistic, culinary (CookIt), literacy, RE and Learning
    Journey activities

  • The chance to learn how to keep themselves safe from extremist views
