We believe that respect for others is a vital component of moral development. We encourage open discussions in all areas but especially in lessons which promote citizenship such as PSHE. We actively support all to develop their own reasoned views about moral and ethical issues. We encourage pupils to understand the rights and responsibilities as citizens within our school and wider community.
Achievement is celebrated across the school; in Achievement assemblies, through phone calls to parents and through our website and newsletter.
Our Upper Key Stage 2 team develop a link with our community through a child led project. Previously children voted to research and explore homelessness in Banbury. They met with a volunteer from Banbury Young Homeless Project (BYHP) to learn about why young people become homeless and how BYHP support the local community. The children in Year 5 and 6 were so touched by the issues raised they decided to hold a sleepover to raise money for the charity. They slept on the floor and were without home comforts and raised over £200.00 for the charity.
The children also produced a display for Castle Quay’s Shopping Centre, informing the local community about the issue and how they can help.
