MOTIVATED, PROUD, SUCCESSFUL
At Mickleover Primary School, the potential of each child is celebrated by providing a high quality, challenging, inspiring and engaging curriculum designed to meet the needs of each pupil. This, in conjunction with our inclusive ethos, enables us to promote Fundamental British Values within all aspects of life at Mickleover Primary School. These values are:
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
- Mutual respect.
- Rule of law.
- Individual liberty.

In addition to these values, we also believe in and actively promote the importance of equality, cooperation, responsibility and compassion. We seek to provide opportunities to mix with and learn from people from a variety of backgrounds to share a common sense of identity through shared values and common experiences.
A visit from a Jewish Rabbi to talk to our Year 4 Children.
Dr Takhar came to talk to the Year 6 about the Sikh faith. The children were able to draw upon this first-hand experience to make information leaflets about Sikhism.

“Open – the – Book” come each fortnight to tell Bible stories in assemblies. The children love helping to act out the stories, many of which are traditional to Islam and Judaism as well as Christianity.

Classes sometimes ‘pair up’ to share work and create opportunities for our older children to help and encourage the younger children.

An example of a Year 6 CLASS CHARTER:
- Think before you act.
- Be proud of your achievements, but don't 'brag.'
- Concentrate on your own work.
- Treat each other (and each other's belongings) with respect: ask if you need to look in someone's tray.
- Walk sensibly around the classroom.
- Always try to do your best and aim high!
- Listen when others are talking.
- Help and support each other if help is needed.
- Always put you hand up if you want to speak, rather than shout out.
- Ask before borrowing something.
- Tell the truth.
- Treat others how you wish to be treated.
- Be polite.
- Make sure you mark up the correct number of team points.
- Work hard and don't give up - use your 'bounce-back-ability.'
- Think of others before yourself.
- Apologise if you are in the wrong.
The School Council organised a Christmas Jumper for ‘Save the Children;’ they raised £263.50. The students also took part in ‘Red Nose’ Day, during which they raised £539.62!

Extracts from recent Food Council minutes:
- Chicken Chowder - Mixed reviews about this recipe. Feedback was that the sauce was quite savoury, not as ‘sweet’ as some of the meals that we have had before. Mr Goodwin will see what he can do about this.
- Year 4 - Sweet and sour chicken bites very popular.
- Year 2 - Really liked the sweet and sour chicken.

Scheduled visits from the Police and Fire service happen throughout the year.
The values are taught through a variety of means, including Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE), Circle Time and Religious Education (RE). We also actively promote British Values through our daily collective worship and school structures such as School Council and Eco Council.
