British Values

At Barnabas Oley Church of England Primary School, we centre children's education on not only their academic progress, but also their progress as individual people and citizens.

We offer a wide range of experiences and activities that, combined with our general school policies, aims, vision and values, promote each child's personal development and core values needed, to be a successful and valuable member of our society. We believe in educating the children in our care to be good citizens and to develop the skills they need to have a successful and productive life in modern Britain.

We celebrate cultural diversity in our school and community through visits, assemblies and more, whilst learning what it is to be a British citizen. We provide a broad and balanced PSHERE and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC) curriculum which explicitly teaches the children the importance of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths.

We are committed to keeping Barnabas Oley Primary School children safe and happy in order for them to grow and flourish to their full potential in all aspects of their lives.

Prevent Strategy

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.  From July 2015, all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.
