As a school we promote these values through a variety of activities.

The Rule of Law
Ensuring that school rules, including safety rules, are understood and consistently applied. Opportunities for pupils to distinguish between right and wrong. Visits from the emergency services. eSafety rules and their importance. Bikeability and road safety.
