British Values

Our academy reflects British values in all that we do.  We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our academy, our local community and the wider world.  

    At Kettering Park Infant Academy, we actively promote British values in the following ways:

  • DEMOCRACY

    All children are encouraged to debate topics of interest, express their views and make a meaningful contribution to the running of the academy. The principle of democracy is explored in the curriculum as well as during assemblies and special days 

  • RULE OF LAW

    Academy rules and expectations are clear, fair and regularly promoted

    Pupils are always helped to distinguish right from wrong, in the classroom, during assemblies and on the playground

    Pupils are encouraged to respect the law and we enjoy visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service and Ambulance Service to help reinforce this message

    The Behaviour and Anti-Bullying policies set out a zero tolerance baseline for any form of aggression, abuse or violence, which extends to pupils, staff and parents and carers

  • INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY

    Within the academy, pupils are actively encouraged, and given the freedom to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment

    Pupils are supported to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence

    Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour and our pastoral support reinforces the importance of making the right choices

    Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our e-safety teaching and PSHE lessons

    Vulnerable pupils are protected and stereotypes challenged 

    A strong anti-bullying culture is embedded in the academy and any form of bullying is challenged and addressed  The academy operates a robust system of logging incidents

    Pupils have key roles and responsibilities in the academy e.g. academy councillors & Playground Buddies

  • MUTUAL RESPECT AND TOLERANCE OF THOSE WITH DIFFERENT FAITHS AND BELIEFS

    Respect is one of the core values of our academy.  The pupils know and understand that it is expected that respect is shown to everyone, adults and children

    Pupils are helped to acquire an understanding of, and respect for, their own and other cultures and ways of life

    Staff and pupils are encouraged to challenge prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

    Links and visits are promoted with local faith communities and places of worship e.g. members of different faiths or religions are invited to the academy to share their knowledge and enhance learning

    Through PSHE and RE pupils are encouraged to discuss and respect differences between people.
