Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
At KFJS, we have a variety of cultures beliefs amongst our pupils and staff. Although broadly Christian in ethos, we strongly promote diversity with the children. Assemblies are regularly planned to address this through the inclusion of stories, discussions, visitors and learning about celebrations from a variety of faiths and cultures. Our RE teaching also reinforces this. Pupils and visitors of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school. Children visit places of worship that are important to different faiths where possible.
Our school council developed a school prayer which is frequently said at assemblies. The prayer is acceptable to those of any faith.
Children from faiths are used in lessons or assemblies to help other pupils understand their religion.
Children are allowed to wear the Hijab, and take part in their religious celebrations (e.g. Eid); this is celebrated in school.
At KFJS, we will actively challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
