British Values - who are we and where do we live?

In our inclusive school, we value, seek to understand, and identify potential in everyone. We encourage everyone in our school community to engage in the life of the school and wider community.

We promote values which include: British democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty; respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs (and no faith) - alongside an appreciation and celebration of difference and diversity (reflecting all protected characteristics and social class). We promote rights and accept that with rights come responsibility.

Valuing our cultural heritage, we explore our local, regional and national heritage and British History, both positive and negative - learning from history and taking pride in positive contributions made

We celebrated St George's Day with an afternoon tea and played some ring games.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school community where everyone is wel;come and differences are celebrated. Traditionally the Norton community was predominately White British with little diversity, but this is changing. All the children at Frederick Nattrass speak English, but for some this is not their first language. We have a small number ofchildren who are new to English (currently speaking Mandarin, Punjabi, Urdu, Lingala and French). With a carefully planned induction programme they thrive at Frederick Nattrass and become fluent English speakers within a year of arrival.


We held a minutes silence to commemorate Remembrance Day. We scattered poppy seeds that hopefully will grow in the Spring to remind us of the sacrifice made by our armed forces.


Children are supported to practice a number of religions within our broadly Christian curriculum. Currently we have children who practicingSikhs, Muslims, Church of England, Catholics andJehovah's Witnesses. Our collective worship sensitively supports children who may not be Christian, but enoucurages them to learn about other faiths.

Being a multi-cultural school enriches the experience for all our children, staff and parents. We celebrate all Christian festivals but also learn about Chinese New Year, Eid, Ramadan and Passover - often our children of other faiths are hugely useful in educating their classmates. Visits to places of worhip helps them with this understanding - and our whole school comunity (including parents) celebrate Christian festivals in St Mary the Virgin Church in Norton.

We prepare children to grow up as productive, empathetic and tolerant members of a multi-cultural Britain. Celebrating difference and understanding that we are all the same

Our children grow up in a variety of families and all are celebrated, understood and welcomed into our school community:

  • Children living with one parent
  • Children living with both parents
  • Combined families with half or step siblings and a step parent
  • Children living with grandparents or extended family rather than parents
  • Children living in foster care or under special guardianship arrangements

Our children have a good level of understanding of the different relationships that exist within families and treat all families equally.
