At Cockshut Hill School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families and wider school community. Our curriculum takes a global approach to learning by introducing themes from the perspective of other people in other countries.
The Department of Education states that there is a need:
“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.
Our school reflects British values in all that we do. We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community
and the wider world.
On June 16th 2017 more than 200 teenagers today marked the start of a UK-wide weekend of celebrations of the life of the murdered MP Jo Cox.
The 14 and 15 year olds from Ninestiles School and Cockshut Hill School formed a large heart-shaped chain and spell out her name along with MP Jess Phillips. There was coverage from the BBC and ITV news.
