Examples of celebrating British Values
As a whole school, Remembrance Day celebrations are held annually where children purchase poppies and a minute’s silence is held in a dedicated Remembrance Assembly.
Every Christmas the performances of Foundation Stage and KS1 children are based on the Christian faith with a traditional Nativity play.
We have celebrated the World Cup and the Olympics, with Olympic themed sports days. The visit of the Olympic torch through Dewsbury was also embraced.
The Golden Jubilee was a huge event for the school, with a ‘street party’ event held on the school playground. Traditional children’s party food was served to all. Each class showcased a country from the commonwealth and performed for their peers and parents.
In 2012 we celebrated our centenary through a Victorian themed day.
We strongly believe that our children need to be taught the laws and heritage of Britain and feel a sense of belonging without sacrificing their own identity. Respect for all and tolerance of all faiths and backgrounds is paramount at Carlton J & I.
