Cardinal Wiseman Promotes British Values
Cardinal Wiseman’s motto is Omnia pro Christo “All for Christ” and in our school we try to live this motto out in our daily lives as Christians. Cardinal Wiseman’s Values are the practical way the school community demonstrates and practise our Christian values. Value Evidenced through:
We try things we think we might not be able to do. We know we will fail at some things and we learn from failure. We know struggling is part of learning. We dare to do what is right, following school rules.
We are ambitious in our learning. We believe if you work hard you can improve, learning from mistakes. We forgive others for mistakes. We participate in the religious life of the school.
We want to succeed in learning. We enjoy a challenge and take risks. We are curious to find out new things. We show determination to overcome problems.
The more you practise the better it gets. We participate in school events.
We are always ready to learn. We are resilient and never give up because we want to learn. We recognise our own worth and that of others whatever their background or opinion. We are prepared to change and help others do the same.
We help others by sharing ideas and helping others to learn. We welcome new pupils and visitors. We do work for charity with support our local and global community. We collaborate with others as part of our learning.
Whilst DfE have reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to 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.”
We at Cardinal Wiseman are able to link our school values closely with British values. It was the Government who set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated this year (2014).
At Cardinal Wiseman these values are reinforced regularly and the document ( at the top of this page) further illustrates this.
