Mutual Respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying have been followed and supported by learning in RE and PSHE.  Within school, members of different faiths or religions are also encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.  This includes parents coming in to talk as well as pupils.

 Ladysmith School serves a multi-faith community where each person is respected and valued equally without regard to ability, gender, faith, heritage or race.

 The need for mutual respect is embedded throughout the school.  Our range of PSHE resources including the UNICEF Rights and Responsibilities Programme, SEAL, Go Givers, 'Value' leaves and the Kelso Programme all have respect for others as a key focus.  All members of the school community treat each other with respect.  Classes ‘buddy’ with other year groups and pupils and adults respect and help each other in and around the school.
