British Values at Wreningham

At Wreningham, we value the diversity of backgrounds of all our pupils, families and wider school community. We take our responsibility very seriously to prepare children for life in modern Britain.

We help the children to remember the British Values through the helping hand model above


The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:

-  Respect for democracy and support or participation in the

   democratic process

-  Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in


-  Support for equality of opportunity for all

-  Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law

-  Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and

    other beliefs

Our curriculum, and in particular our RE and RSHE lessons and our Collective Worship provide opportunities to deepen and develop evryone's understanding of these values.. Our children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of how to apply these values in their own lives.

We Explore Black History Month:

During assembly in October we discussed and explored the importance of Black History month.  One of the incredible human beings who have pushed human exploits in sport to the limits, is Michael Jordan, and we found out about his life as a child.  We talked about how important it is to see someone like you achieving things - if you can see it, you too can do it.  We found out that those of us who are black or of mixed heritage, have not been, and are still often not

portrayed fairly, or even been visible at all, in books, films, the media or maybe society as a whole.  . 

This is the link to the official Black History Month Website:

Class 4 have had many discussions concerning the idea of equality,  and many children put forward the view that it is a shame we need a Black History month at all, and that black history is just 'history' for everyone:


If you want to know more about Black History Month, then this link to the National Geographic for Kids explain the reasons and importance of the month and how it started in the USA in 1976, as well as some links to some  black African American heroes from all walks of life.

The Wreningham Family Celebrate

the Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022


We spent a hot Friday in June 2022 celebrate the Queen's Jubilee, with traditional cream teas,  with familes invited, and a chance to see our wonderful 'Portraits of the Queen' exhibition in Wrenigham village hall,  where prizes were awarded for some beautiful artwork and uniquely creative ways of representing our Queen:






British values in Schools:

The Department for Education (27 November 2014) published guidance on promoting British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.

The guidance aims to help both independent and state-maintained schools understand their responsibilities in this area. All schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. These values were first set out by the government in the ‘Prevent’ strategy in 2011.

The published guidance can be found here (pdf).
