  • Ensure that children will develop their understanding and awareness of others beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures.
  • - Encourage children to develop their own beliefs and values by having the opportunities to ask and explore through enquiry based questioning.
  • - For all staff model and encourage children to develop respect, tolerance, empathy and compassion towards others.
  • - To develop children’s cultural capital in order to prepare them for their future. We will teach pupils the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes for everyday life and beyond.
