Our Values and Mission Statement

Our School Values and Mission Statement

Our school is a happy, welcoming and diverse community of pupils, families, parents, governors and staff. Each member of our community is valued equally as an individual. We aim for all of our children and staff to achieve their maximum potential in a caring and safe environment. We respect and empathise with each other and with all members of society. We focus on our #BroadwayFamily 

In partnership with parents, carers and families, we strive constantly for our children to enjoy school and to be enthusiastic lifelong and independent learners and most importantly be part of #BroadwayFamily. We acknowledge the great importance of the emotional health and wellbeing of all members of our school community. We believe in an active curriculum which engages and motivates the children, promotes a healthy lifestyle and the need to look after the environment. We believe in all children achieving their maximum potential through personalised learning.

We aim to prepare our children to be responsible citizens who have the confidence, resilience and adaptability to meet the challenges of the changing world but ensure that we have opportunities for children to be active learners.

British Values

At Broadway Primary School we actively promote British Values, through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching: ‘ensure that they and the school promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and support and help, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain’.

The government define these values as:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths

At Broadway Primary we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our
community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this are a range of curriculum topics which have strong links to the British Empire. We actively challenge children, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.

To promote these values:

  • We have an elected school council where pupil’s voices are heard and pupils also have the opportunity to complete questionnaires. We have elected council head and vice which represent and act as role models for the school, alongwith our Well being ambassadors.
  • Our collective worship calendar actively promotes these values through the use of PSHE, RE and SEAL objectives. These values are a focus for each term and incorporated further into PSHE and RE lessons.
  • Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service, etc. are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message. In the broad and balanced curriculum that we deliver there is opportunity to discuss these.
  • Pupils are actively encouraged and supported to make informed choices, to know and exercise their rights and personal freedom, but safely for example through our e-safety policy.
  • Our positive behaviour policy encourages tolerance and mutual respect.
  • We visit different places of worship and have visitors to school from other faiths. 
  • As a whole school, we have celebrated special British events such as the cononation of King Charles.
  • Our house sytem focuses on Charity and the understanding of helping others (Currently, Derian House, Men Shed, Sophie Lancaster Foundation and East Lancashire Down Syndrome)
