INTENT STATEMENT

The Green Way Academy is proud to serve the community of North Hull and give our pupils the very best learning opportunities and experiences regardless  of their circumstances. We are committed to delivering an exciting, inspirational, and motivating curriculum which enables pupils to become independent learners preparing them for their next steps in life. Our mission is pure and simple: we want all of our pupils to experience success and have high aspirations so that they can go on to lead a remarkable life.

RE and British Values

The Green Way Academy actively promotes the British values of:

· Democracy

· The rule of law

· Individual liberty

· Mutual respect

· Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

By actively promoting these values we challenge opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to British values. RE lessons offer structured  and safe space during curriculum time for reflection, discussion, dialogue and debate.  Excellent teaching or RE enables pupils to learn to think for themselves about British values. In RE pupils learn the skills and develop attitudes that help protect themselves and others from harm throughout their lives.

 The RE classroom is a democratic classroom where all pupils have an equal right to be heard and democracy is modelled by the teacher and expected of every pupil. In RE pupils examine different codes for living and consider the value of the rule of law where all people are equal before the law. They consider questions about identify and belonging. Religion is a good case study of the balance between individual liberty and the greater good. RE can challenge pupils to be increasingly respectful and to celebrate diversity of different cultures, faiths and beliefs.

RE and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education

Through our provision of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) aspects, we:

· enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence

· enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England

· encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widel

· enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England

· further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other culture

· encourage respect for other people

· encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England
