Promoting British Values at Glodwick. Please see our values below.
- We encourage our learners to become involved in making decisions when they start in our Nursery. They learn about choices and how to become independent.
- Our Year 1 and Year 2 make up our School Council. The councillors are elected by the children in the classes they represent. Year 2 councillors represent Nursery and Reception classes. Through this election system the learners are introduced to the voting.
- We encourage our learners to talk about themselves, their families and their learning. We engage in formal learner consultation annually and take on board the comments and suggestions made.
- Through our Behaviour Policy we model how perceived injustice can be peacefully and democratically challenged.
