Berridge Primary and Nursery SchoolWorking Together to Achieve Success



We respect others and have consideration for their feelings.

Good Practice

  • Giving pupils the opportunity to explore values and beliefs, including religious beliefs, and the way in which they impact on peoples’ lives.
  • Where pupils already have religious beliefs, supporting and developing these beliefs in ways which are personal and relevant to them.
  • Encouraging pupils to reflect and to learn from reflection. 
  • Giving pupils the opportunity to understand human feelings and emotions, the way they impact on people and how an understanding of them can be helpful.
  • Developing a climate or ethos within which all pupils can grow and flourish, respect others and be respected.
