British Values - Evidence and Impact
At Delce Academy, we are dedicated to doing all we can to prepare our pupils for life in modern Britain. Through our focus upon Core Learning Skills, we enable our children to become independent, reflective and creative learners who are able to positively face challenges set before them. This ethos is interwoven and embedded throughout the life of our school.
We celebrate and explore British Values throughout our creative and connected curriculum; in addition to this, we ensure that British Values are introduced, explored and discussed in dedicated British Values lessons. These are a key part of our Core Learning Skills curriculum alongside RE and SMSC. These sessions allow our pupils to explore issues in more depth and to make sense of them personally. Our pupils demonstrate good understanding of these important values and embrace them enthusiastically in a range of contexts.
We encourage our pupils to explore their role in the wider world at every opportunity. We are keen participants in local sporting events, competitions and enjoy residential visits to outdoor centres. We welcome visiting speakers from all faiths and groups, as well as those from the emergency services, and other community groups. Additionally, we endeavour to provide our pupils with many opportunities to go on meaningful trips, locally and further afield. These trips support our pupils’ learning and develop their experience of different cultures and the world around them. We take a very active role in supporting local and national charities through fundraising events which the children themselves take a central role in planning, organising and running.
At Delce Academy, we endeavor to help our pupils become the very best they can be - people who make a positive impact on society and the world around us.
