This page aims to summarise how, as a school community, Carleton Green helps its pupils to develop “British values”. The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. At Carleton Green these values are reinforced regularly.

At Carleton Green we actively encourage all our pupils to be healthy, respectful, tolerant members of our school, local community and wider world. We promote the importance of respecting fundamental British values and use lessons across the curriculum lessons as opportunities for teaching about life in modern Britain while encouraging pupils to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of others.

All Key Stage assemblies and some whole school assemblies are focused on promoting British Values, encouraging self esteem, developing an awareness of the wider world and celebrating achievement and diverse festivals. PSHE is taught by class teachers for half an hour every week, R.E is taught for half an hour each week, teachers and LSAs also offer vast opportunities across the curriculum for the values to be reinforced.

We are very proud of our CARLETON CODE which underpins our values as a school and mirrors many areas promoted by British Values. Carleton Green children strive to earn stamps on their passport to be rewarded with a badge that they proudly display on their jumpers. Every July one child from each class is awarded a certificate for each area of the CARLETON CODE for displaying outstanding behavior on that area.
