Promoting British Values
In June, 2014 Michael Gove set out plans for all school children to be taught ‘British values’. The then Education Secretary announced that from September 2014, England’s 20,000 primary and secondary schools would be required to actively promote tolerance, fairness, respect for other faiths, and the rule of law and democracy.
At Elmley Castle School we value the views of our children. Our school council is an important part of that pupil voice. Our councillors campaigned for their position and a secret ballot was used to elect each member. Each of our elected members have signed a code of conduct contract. Please listen to Olly's manifesto below; you will see how passionate our children are about our school and how seriously they take their responsibilities as a citizen of our school, country and our world.
