Great Britain

Learn to Love, Love to Learn


The Government has set out its definition of British values as:

  • democracy;
  • the rule of law;
  • individual liberty;
  • mutual respect;
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Undoubtedly, these values are cornerstones and traditions of British society and the ideals of community cohesion.

As a Catholic school we actively foster values, virtues and ethics that shape our children's character and moral perspective.  Gospel values permeate every aspect of our daily life in school as set out in our Mission Statement. 

At St Bede's Catholic Infant School it is the intention of the whole school community to nurture a loving, caring, supportive quality environment in which the individual has an opportunity to develop Spiritually, Morally, Intellectually, Socially and Emotionally in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect.

All of the children in our school are cared for, nurtured, respected and valued, regardless of wealth, class, gender or ethnicity or faith.

We aspire to support our children in their development as courteous, generous, tolerant, well rounded and well educated citizens.  We believe that we are responsible for supporting the children to appreciate and value diversity in a society which 'promotes and supports the dignity and worth of everyone!' (Come and See: Catholic Primary Education Programme 2012 p.12).

Our curriculum work and many of our school initiatives support the endorsement of British Values and further information can be found in our school Policy – Embedding British Values and Promoting Cultural Diversity and Anti-Racists Practice which is supported by other school policies.

Long Live the Queen

The children had a wonderful day on Wednesday 9th September celebrating Queen Elizabeth II becoming our longest reigning monarch. They were treated to a special assembly led by Miss Scragg to mark the Queens reign and learned about the Queen and the royal family.

Together, we paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II who surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria and talked about why this was such a special day.


From all the children and staff at St Bede's Infants we would like to congratulate Queen Elizabeth II and hope she will reign for many more years.
