At Stainton CE Primary School, we pride ourselves on our creative curriculum whereby we teach through a cross-curricular approach, ensuring British Values are promoted across the school.
What are British Values?
According to Ofsted, 'fundamental British values' are:

How do we teach British Values?
As a school, we follow a scheme of work called "Jigsaw" which brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme which is underpinned by British Values. This is a mindfulness approach which is incorporated through all aspects of our daily routine as well as having a stand alone 'Jigsaw' lesson each week.
For more information take a look at the Jigsaw website: https://www.jigsawpshe.com
Alternatively, look at "Curriculum - PSHE" in the Key Information tab on our website.
Daily collective worship sessions also address the key values both in relation to our responsibility to teach British Values and promote our own Church of England school ethos values. Each term, we focus on two values which form the basis of our collective worship.
Parliament Week – 1 – 7 November 2021
We took part in Parliament Week in 2021 during which we looked at the roles within Parliament and the process of democracy.
We held a whole school debate on the effectiveness of our School Council and whether the School Council should continue in its current form or should be changed, following which we had a whole school ballot to find out what pupils thought about this.
The results of the ballot were that we should keep the School Council as it currently is.
We then held a ballot within each class to decide who the class School Council members should be.
