Safeguarding

The school has a responsibility to safeguard all children with whom they come into contact. The person with designated responsibility for this is the Headteacher in the first instance and, in her absence, the Deputy Headteacher. Full details of procedures are in our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.

 

School Ethos

School Ethos

The school aims to serve the members of its community, including those of all faiths or none, by providing an education of the highest quality in order that every child has the best possible life chances. Encouraging an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, within the context of Christian belief and practice, we promote Christian and British values through the experience we offer to our pupils.

Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan levels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brightwalton CE Primary School Values

We believe that having secure values brings confidence and happiness in all areas of life. Knowing what we value in ourselves and others helps us to behave and act in ways that make us feel good about ourselves - it feels like the right thing to do. Clear values also help us to treat others as we would wish to be treated by them.

Here at Brightwalton C.E. Primary School our values are based within the Christian faith and have love as their foundation - love of God, love of others and love of self. They have been selected through consultation with pupils, staff, governors and parents and are reflected in our Mission Statement.   The selection has much in common with the values of our twenty-first century world, reflecting and upholding the British Values as directed under the Ofsted guidance of September 2014 but retaining a distinctive Christian character. These values, including democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths, are taught through collective worship, PSHE, Citizenship and RE.

These and the values listed below will be taught through a 2 year rolling programme, linked to our broad and balanced curriculum. Specific teaching will be through collective worship (whether whole school assemblies or class/group assemblies), Religious Education lessons and Personal Social and Health Education sessions. Indirect teaching through our ethos will be continuous, visible in our curriculum, expectations, management, language and relationships.
