Rule of Law

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced both through the curriculum, Collective Worship and our broader expectations, such as when managing behaviour. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service help reinforce this message. We endeavour to ensure school rules and expectations are clear and fair and where appropriate develop restorative justice approaches to resolve conflicts


We do this to:

•Help pupils to distinguish right from wrong
•Help pupils to respect the law and the basis on which it is made
•Help pupils to understand that living under the rule of law protects individuals
•Teach pupils aspects of both civil and criminal law and discuss how this might differ from some religious laws
