Children are taught right from wrong and are given many opportunities throughout the year to develop their thinking and decision making skills. We involve outside agencies to help us to enable pupils to have a good working knowledge of what is morally correct. Our children respond to the boundaries we put in place for them as a school and each key stage has its own rewards and sanctions, as outlined in our behaviour policy. We maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour both within and outside school.
The moral development of pupils is shown by their:
- ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong and to readily apply this understanding in their own lives, recognise legal boundaries and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England
- understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions
- interest in investigating and offering reasoned views about moral and ethical issues and ability to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues.
