At Yeoman Park Academy we promote British values through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education which runs throughout the academy curriculum and supports the development of the ‘whole child’. We also recognise that we are part of Nottinghamshire, and promote this to our children at the academy.
We recognise that development of these values is most successful when they are promoted by all the staff, providing a model of behaviour for our children and young people. The curriculum in all phases offers broad and balanced opportunities.
Children and young people are encouraged to experience British culture through our curriculum themes. For example, there are opportunities to visit many local places and we take part in sporting activities to help instill fair play and encourage team spirit.
Although some may find it difficult to articulate their feelings and concerns, staff are attuned to changes in demeanor and wellbeing that may indicate anxiety. If staff are concerned about a child or young person our accepted practice links to the Child Protection Policy which entrusts a duty of care to all staff to actively protect and promote the welfare of children.
Our staff work closely with families and other professionals to ensure that children and young people are happy, well cared for and able to learn the skills they need to live a fulfilling life as part of their community.
