British Values

Although we do not have an explicit values curriculum at Castle Wood school, there are certain values that inform the way that we behave and provide a positive influence for pupils.

Treating others with tolerance and respect, being inclusive and accepting of difference, engaging with others with generosity, particularly when they are in difficulty, aspiring for the highest standards, behaving with honesty and integrity, behaving with care and responsibility for our environment – we hope that through their time at Castle Wood school, these are the values that are modelled and reinforced for pupils. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are an essential aspect of their education; pupils are given a range of opportunities to develop an understanding of these values.
Whether they are specifically British values is a debate for others, but we believe that attention to these has helped form the positive atmosphere that is such a feature of Castle Wood school.
