Fundamental British values
Our document Fundamental British Values – Pamphlet for Parents outlines the statutory requirement for all British schools to promote what are known as the ‘fundamental British values’, which are:
The rule of law
Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
It also very briefly summarises how this is implemented at Newbury Hall.
SWGfL’s Online Safety Guidance for Parents and EduCare’s Keeping Safe Online – Fact Sheet 1 for Parents contain information for parents about how to help keep their children safe online. Barnardo’s leaflet Childhoods in a Digital World contains information on how technology has changed childhood and what the implications may be for safety.
Keeping Children Safe
The document Working Together – Childrens’ Version is a child-friendly version of Working Together to Safeguard Children. They explain what teachers, leaders and other organisations do to help keep children safe. They are a very important part of what we do at Newbury Hall, and of what all schools are expected to do in England.
Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE is a compulsory part of the curriculum at all schools in England, and at Newbury Hall all students attend weekly PSHE lessons. Please see the PSHE Association’s education guidance for parents, which includes leaflets with advice on: Why PSHE is an important aspect of education?
Sex and relationships education in schools, etc.
Preventing Radicalisation and Terrorism
Preventing Violent Extremism – What Parents Can Do is ParentInfo.org’s guide for parents to help prevent children being drawn into terrorist activities and extremist ideologies. EducateAgainstHate also has a bank of Q&As about radicalisation.
The Prevent Duty contains the government’s advice document on how schools can fulfil their statutory duty of preventing children being radicalised and drawn into terrorism.
ReadTheory.org literacy programme – ReadTheory Parent Information. Parents’ Guide to English Grammar is a fact sheet for parents on what grammar and punctuation is typically taught in what years in English schools.
If a parent has any concerns at all about bullying, they should contact the school immediately to discuss them. At Newbury Hall we take anti-bullying very seriously, and as a result it is very rare. However, we remain vigilant and ask parents to be, too.
Organisations Supporting Parents (Webpages)
ParentZone and ParentInfo both provide extensive resources and advice to help parents educate their children and keep them safe.
