we loved our time at the gallery today with our Year 9 art students. Artists in Residence for 2019 is poet Belinda Zhawi. We learned of how Zhawi’s poetry reflects the dialogue between multiple cultures and places. https://t.co/iD4lQI4INl

British Values

2_1920

The academy supports and delivers a firm commitment to developing and upholding British Values. 

Democracy

We have our own Student Council made of up of elected Form reps, a Student Leadership Group as well as elected Head Boy and Head Girl. Students are taught in a variety of ways including tutor time, assemblies and in subject specific content about the importance of democracy.

The Rule of Law

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the academy or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout all aspects of academy life. Students and parents are taught the value and reasons behind our rules, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. We have talks from the Community Police Office team to students on the rule of law.

Individual Liberty

Students are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. We educate and provide boundaries for students to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and empowering education.  Students are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and tutor lessons. Whether it be through choice of learning challenge, of how they record, of participation in our extra-curricular clubs and opportunities, pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

South and Upper Norwood are situated in an area which is greatly culturally diverse and we place a great emphasis on promoting diversity with the student and staff body. Our RE, assemblies and tutor teaching reinforce this. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes.

Curriculum

Within the wider curriculum and its delivery we expect all students irrespective of gender, ethnic origin or beliefs:

  • To participate in PE lessons. In Years 7, 8 and 9 on the South Norwood site, there is mixed gender teaching
  • PE lessons in Years 10 and 11 are taught in single sex classes
  • Female students in all years can be taught by a male PE teachers
  • All students are expected to take part in PE, Art, Music and Drama lessons
  • Students will be taught in mixed gender groups in all other subject
  • To participate in wider activities and discussions, for example, during tutor time, that uphold British values
  • To show tolerance of different faiths and beliefs, including Christianity.

Radicalisation and Extremism

The academy believes and actively supports the view that all students should be protected from radicalisation and extremism. Our approach to this is in line with the Government’s CONTEST strategy (the counter terrorist strategy) and PREVENT (stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism).

Radicalisation is the process by which people come to support terrorism and extremism, and in some, cases participate in terrorist groups. Extremism is the vocal or active opposition to the fundamental British values in bullet points above.

Our 100% commitment to safeguarding student welfare means we are vigilant to monitoring vulnerability to radicalisation including:

  • Family tensions
  • Sense of isolation
  • Migration
  • Distance from cultural heritage
  • Experience of racism or discrimination
  • Feeling of failure

Any concerns must be reported to the Designated Safeguarding Officer, Mrs Robinson on the South Norwood site and Mrs Rowe, on the Upper Norwood site who will make a referral using the “Channel” referral form.

A cross-curricular approach

We deliver a cross curricular approach to the delivery of SMSC, including British Values

  • via current affairs – a 20 minute discussion session once a week centred on a topic in the news such as Extremism
  • via assemblies – a 15 session once a week centred on a theme that links to British Values, for example, Human Rights and Freedom
  • via FLICKS (Faith, Lifestyle, Inclusion, Culture, Knowledge and Society) - tutorial activities that encourage the exploration and application of British Values
  • via student leadership – actively voting in academy elections to elect posts of responsibility
  • via Religious Education – predominantly Christian but exploring beliefs and values of other faiths including multicultural celebrations.
  • In subjects where we map how other subjects deliver knowledge and understanding of key concepts that link to British Values.
