How we promote British Values at Tabor?
At Tabor we have embedded The Department for Education published guidance on promoting British values in schools and ensure young people leave Tabor School prepared for life in modern Britain. We actively promote:· The fundamental British values of democracy
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Examples of the understanding and knowledge students learn include:
- An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
- An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
- An acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
How we prevent radicalisation & extremism – extracts from our school policies:
Tabor School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. We recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability. All staff at Tabor uphold and promote fundamental British Values and must report any concerns.
- Our SMSC provision is embedded across the curriculum (see school website) and directs our assemblies and underpins our school ethos. It is recognised that children with low aspirations are more vulnerable to radicalisation and therefore we strive to equip our students with confidence, self-belief, respect and tolerance, as well as setting high standards and expectations for themselves
- Students are regularly taught how to stay safe when using the internet and are encouraged to recognise people who aren’t always who they say they are online. They are always taught to seek adult help if they are upset or concerned about anything they read or see on the internet
- Trust Behaviour Policy- Tabor staff have a learning focus, build relationships and encourage students to take responsibility. Restorative approaches are encouraged and supported by teachers calmly explaining when students behaviour has failed to meet community expectations of Be in the ‘Right place’, at the ‘Right time’ doing the ‘Right thing’ and an appropriate sanction is put in place
