From Monday 23rd March, Brantridge school will be open for the children of Key Workers and identified ‘Vulnerable’ pupils only.

We have contacted the parents of those children already.

If you have not been contacted and offered a place, please do not send your child to school as we have staffing shortages.

British Values and SMSC

British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development are both crucial to fostering well-rounded citizens, equipped with the skills needed to live in 21st Century Britain.  Therefore, British Values and SMSC permeates through the curriculum at Brantridge.  We strongly believe it is most effective when those values and attitudes are both fully embedded in pupils’ learning and are actively promoted by staff who provide a model of behaviour for our pupils.

Examples of how British Values and SMSC are promoted through the Brantridge curriculum include:

  • Developing pupils’ communication skills so that they are given a meaningful ‘voice’ to communicate and participate in democratic processes as adults.
  • Empowering pupils by giving them opportunities to make choices about the things that they believe to be important. By valuing each ’voice’ and by listening and responding to that voice we demonstrate that we support democracy and individual liberty.
  • Pupils are supported to learn to take ownership of their behaviour and responsibility for their actions. Staff are committed to providing a consistent and predictable environment within the school and beyond. This enables pupils to feel safe and secure as well as promoting respect for the rule of law.
  • Pupils are encouraged to become responsible and valued citizens. We do this by supporting each pupil to develop greater levels of independence, promoting the concept of individual liberty.
  • We promote mutual respect through pupils’ inclusion in activities, settings and locations. The curriculum is personalised and adapted to meet the needs of each individual pupil as far as possible.
  • Tolerance of different faiths and backgrounds is promoted through a range of activities including assemblies which cover themes such as: friendships, helping others and celebrations from a range of faiths and world events.

Pupils’ moral understanding is promoted in the curriculum: pupils explore simple dilemmas in a supportive environment to begin to recognise right and wrong and understand consequences to their actions.

Weekly assemblies cover themes such as: Tolerance, E-safety, Diwali, Chinese New Year and rule of law.

The communication between home and school is excellent.
