The moral development of pupils is shown by their:
- Ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong, readily apply this understanding in their own lives 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 being able to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues.
Where is this in Kings Furlong Junior School?
- Within the school there is a clear behaviour policy and system. The children are fully aware of the expectations on them and the consequences if they fail to comply.
- The ethos of the school is based on our Learning Behaviours which promotes a clear moral code.
- School council and class council gives the children the opportunity to discuss any issues that are occurring within the school that the children may feel is unfair.
- Within project work the children explore lifestyles and the responsibilities within history and in other places in the world. Children are encouraged to respect the views of other cultures but also question, why? This enables the children to think through the consequences of their actions.
- In assemblies members of the police force have discussed morals with the children.
- Fairness of playtime behaviour is discussed and acted upon within class assemblies – especially football days!
- E-safety is taught termly so children can make the right decisions when online.
