Promoting British Values at Apley Wood Primary School

‘Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good. Periods of reflection are built into lessons and assemblies, and pupils know the difference between right and wrong. Pupils from all backgrounds and cultures mix happily together at playtimes and appreciate each other’s views. Links with schools in other countries, for example Ghana, ensure that pupils have a good understanding of other cultures and those who have different beliefs and practices.’ – Ofsted 2013
