Running through our curriculum is a series of curricular and extra-curricular themes which reinforce British values of:

•    an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
•    an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
•    an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
•    an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination

To promote British values we:
•    Include in the curriculum material on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries.
•    Ensure all students have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes through our year team councils and other democratic opportunities.
•    Hold elections, mock elections, mock trials and debates to promote fundamental British values and provide our students with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view

Pupil Premium:

 

The government introduced Pupil Premium funding in April 2011.

This is additional funding to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children eligible for free school meals or children in care, when compared to their peers.

The pupil premium was allocated to schools in 2011/12 based on the number of students who were known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM). 

From 2012/13 this has been extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past six years (FSM 6). 

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (CLA), and a smaller amount is available for the children of service personnel.

The government allows schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional support these students may need to be successful.

At Stoke Damerel Community College, we have a comprehensive policy and plan, agreed and monitored by governors to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding so that they can achieve the success enjoyed by all students at the College.
