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 pupils. The curriculum in all phases offers broad and balanced opportunities.
Pupils are encouraged to experience British Culture through our curriculum themes. For example, pupils have visited many local places. We take part in sporting activities as an academy that help to instill fair play and encourage team spirit.
Although some of our pupils may find it difficult to articulate their feelings and concerns, staff are attuned to changes in demeanour and well-being that may indicate anxiety. If they are concerned about a pupil 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.
The staff work closely with parents, carers and other professionals to ensure that pupils are happy, well cared for and enabled to learn the skills they need to live a fulfilling life as part of their community.
