British Heritage

Celebrating British Culture

As part of our work to promote fundamental British values we have also developed our curriculum to give our pupils a broad and balanced experience of the world including a thread of British Heritage throughout the curriculum across all Key Stages. A range of British authors, artists, influential individuals, figures from the past and events from history. These are explored in conjunction with others from around the world. In this way we hope to give our pupils a sense of not only their place in Britain, but also the place of Britain and Britons in the wider world.
