Vision Statement

Respect              Enjoy                Achieve

Our aims for our children are:

  • To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.

  • To promote equality of opportunity and aims to develop the children’s awareness of moral cultural, social and spiritual issues.

  • To have excellent and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.

  • To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims for the school we actively promote British values whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their learning experiences and achieve well.

Promoting British Values at Crowlands Primary

The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

At Crowlands these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways:


  • Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our Pupil Council and Pupil questionnaires.

  • The elections of House Captains and Pupil Council.

The Rule of Law:

  • The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies.

  • Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.

  • Visits from authorities such as the Police and the Fire Service are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty:

  • Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.

  • As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely, through our provision of a safe environment and empowering education.

  • Participation in our numerous extra-curricular clubs and opportunities,
    pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

Mutual Respect

  • Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around Core Values such as ‘Respect’, and pupils have been part of discussions and assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown.

  • Posters around the school promote respect for others and this is reiterated through our classroom and learning rules, as well as our behaviour policy.

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs:

  • This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity.

  • Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying have been followed and supported by learning in RE and PSHE.

  • Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.

  • Awareness and places of worship are visited.
