Individual Liberty

Alongside rules and laws, we promote freedom of choice and the right to respectfully express views and beliefs.

Through the provision of a safe, supportive environment and an empowering education, we provide boundaries for our young pupils to make choices safely; for example:

  • Choices about what learning challenge or activity to complete.
  • Choices about how they record their learning.
  • Choices around the participation in extra-curricular activities.
  • Choices around what lunch they eat.
  • Choices as to whether to go inside or outside at lunch or use the lunch club.

Our pupils are encouraged to know, to understand and to exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are taught how to exercise these safely, such as in our e-safety and Life Skills lessons.
