British Values and Borrow Wood Ethos
Our school ethos is based on the word 'CHOICE'.
Challenge… where we have a go, make mistakes and try again.
Honesty… where we always tell the truth.
Ownership… where we take responsibility for our behaviours, learning and environment.
Inclusive… where we accept and respect everyone.
Care… where we look after ourselves and others.
Excellence… where we bring out the best in ourselves.
Through this we actively promote and celebrate British ideals and values.
We teach and promote the concept of democracy through discussion, debate and holding 'elections' for school councillors.
We teach and promote the rule of law by following our own school behaviour policy and through learning about rights and responsibilities.
We teach and promote the concept of individual liberty by valuing all of our community and teaching the children about the lives of people elsewhere.
We teach and promote mutual respect through our day to day expectations - role modelling common courtesy, good manners and respect to all.
We teach and promote tolerance of difference faiths and cultures through assemblies, PSHE, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural and RE lessons.
