At Norfolk Community Primary School we are proud to be promoting the values of:
- the rule of law.
- individual liberty.
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
In our assemblies we take time to think about these important values and what they mean for each one of us. We try to make sure that we uphold these values at our school, and we are proud to live in a country where fairness and freedom of speech are considered to be important.
We have learned about many people who have inspired us because they have stood up for values like this- in our country and around the world.
Here are some of the people we have thought about:
- Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst – who wanted fairness for women, and campaigned to get votes for women
- Rosa Parks – who stood up for what she believed in and got the law changed, promoting equality for black people in the United States of America
- Malala Yousafzai – who believes that everyone should be entitled to education, everywhere in the world. She campaigned for the right of girls to attend school in Pakistan, despite the dangers to her and her family. Malala became the youngest ever winner of a Nobel Prize for peace.
We have also thought about how the law is made in this country, and who helps us to stay safe by upholding the law.
Our school council is elected fairly, and we use voting to decide things fairly whenever we can.
We are proud of our British Values and we work hard to keep them.
