Paris, Bosnia, Whitby and Barcelona are a few of the places that our students have travelled to in order to broaden their horizons and experience life elsewhere in the world. Black History Month Assemblies, Hinduism Day and El Mundo Hispano have all promoted our students’ understanding of different cultures and events in history that have influenced our lives today.
Ofsted consider the cultural development of pupils to be shown by their:
• understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and those of others
• understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain
• knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system and its central role in shaping our history and values, and in continuing to develop Britain
• willingness to participate in and respond positively to artistic, musical, sporting and cultural opportunities
• interest in exploring, improving understanding of and showing respect for different faiths and cultural diversity and the extent to which they understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity, as shown by their tolerance and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities.
