Equality & British Values
As a school we understand the importance of preparing our children for life in modern Britain and part of this is helping children to respect and celebrate diversity within our school community and more widely. Part of the work we do is talk to the children about the Equality Act, using picture books to explore the protected characteristics within it. These include:
- Gender Identity
- Sexual Orientation
As part of our Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum (PSHE), all classes work on valuing difference. We use picture books in PSHE lessons to help us explore the themes. In assembly, we also look at books on respecting, accepting and celebrating diversity and our own uniqueness.

At Summerseat Methodist Primary School, alongside our Christian values, we promote fundamental British values which complement our Christian values and ethos.
We reinforce and promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
