British Values

The majority of children at Edgewick come from ethnic origins other than British, and these cultures and faiths enrich the work we do and the relationships we develop. However at Edgewick School we have always ensured that children, and their families, have a good understanding of expectations and responsibilities of British citizens. We ensure that children understand how democracy and the law work, and how British history has formed the way in which live.

We teach about Human Rights at age appropriate levels throughout the school, and reinforce equality of all British Citizens in our Society, especially that of women. We celebrate all events such as Royal weddings, Remembrance Day and National Holidays. We have a Pantomime and Nativity at Christmas and these are well supported by our parents who are often of different faiths.
