It is expected that pupils should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. The school’s ethos and teaching, which schools should make parents aware of, should support the rule of English civil and criminal law and schools should not teach anything that undermines it. If schools teach about religious law, particular care should be taken to explore the relationship between state and religious law. Pupils should be made aware of the difference between the law of the land and religious law.
Ettington C of E Primary School will endeavour to promote the fundamental British values of
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
