  1. Reflection

At key moments in the year it is essential to connect the school with the broader historical or contemporary events that shape the lives of themselves, their families and modern British society. These events, whether they are timely commemorations or the responses to breaking news need to be structured by the school sensitively and anchored to the core values of tolerance, compassion and respect which are the foundation of the best of Britain’s values and history as a home for many. This is visible in: Remembrance services, pastoral assemblies in the light of international, national and local events, History curriculum with a key element being Britain as a migration nation.
