Where Learning is An Adventure


Tolerance and Mutual Respect

British Values in Action - Tolerance and Mutual Respect 


At Milton Road Primary School, we value the opportunity to  celebrate the diversity in our community.  


Through a focus on the key value of Respect, we support children in ensuring that respect is shown to everyone, regardless of background, culture or faith. We seek to help children understand that it is acceptable to have strong beliefs and to uphold them firmly, but that it is important to understand that other people can have equally strong, differing, beliefs, which must also be respected.


Through RE lesson and Collective worship/assemblies including No Outsiders assemblies children are supported in developing an awareness and appreciation of all cultures and religious beliefs. All areas of the curriculum including English, Geography, Art and History are used to help children develop their understanding of the diversity in the world including faiths, culture, gender and sexual orientation

Through topic-related activities such as debating, children are helped to develop skills of listening to others and respecting their points of view, as well as being able to clearly articulate their own.

The children have the opportunity to visit various places of worship as a way of supporting their understanding of faiths. In turn, visitors to the school (often family members) share customs related to their particular faith and beliefs, and this helps to widen children's understanding.

We have a clear anti-bullying policy at school, which promotes the key idea that all should be treated with respect by those in the school community, so that they are able to flourish in a kind, supportive and tolerant environment.
