The government has defined British values as democracy; individual liberty; the rule of law; mutual respect; tolerance of those with different faiths and belief.
These fundamental values are at the core of our everyday school life, with our curriculum actively displaying them. We whole heartedly promote our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development through some examples below:
Pupil Voice on key areas of school life
All students are given the opportunity to access the curriculum
Safe environment where choices and freedoms are encouraged
Freedom to determine their own learning
Introduced to a range of beliefs through Religious Studies lessons so pupils are able to make more informed choices for themselves
After school clubs are offered
Rule of Law
The involvement of our pupils in the creation of the school rules
Visits from members of police
Students love coming to school and learn to treat each other and staff with respect
Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs
A respectful attitude to those whose faith and beliefs may differ from each other
Religious Studies is taught to all students across KS3 & 4
The Cricket Green pupil council had the priviledge of taking part in the Merton Remembrance Service, and paying tribute to all those who fought in war and gave their lives for their country.
Cricket Green was one of thirteen schools attending, and were able to lay a wreath on behalf of our school.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn, at the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them."
