Britishness within our curriculum

British values, as stated by David Cameron, are intrinsic throughout the Mountjoy Curriculum, ethos and care given. They include

  • A belief in freedom– pupils, parents and staffs views are valued and sought, all pupils are made aware, where possible of others needs and how to support each other. Team Teach principles permeate the daily routines and care given to all. See questionnaires, views on new groupings, care plans

 

  • Tolerance of others– Mountjoy has enviable anti bullying data. Pupils are encouraged to celebrate diversity, recognise their own and others strengths, encounter, celebrate and appreciate difference – see SMSC, Special days, charity work

 

  • Accepting personal and social responsibility– Pupils are involved with community projects, as well as enterprise projects, they participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, alongside The John Muir Award. Pupils are encouraged to assist and help throughout the school. Many in the Sixth Form take part in Work experience placements. There is a thriving School Council- see curriculum, enterprise evidence, awards for pupils, newsletters, school council minutes

 

  • Respecting and upholding the rule of lawgroups make their own class rules, pupils have a clear sense of right and wrong and work hard to maintain and where needed restore relationships. Pupils respect authority are polite, well mannered, helpful and kind- see behaviour data, group rules and awards for kindness
