At Wooden Hill Primary and Nursery School we uphold and teach pupils about the British Values as directed under Ofsted guidance, September 2014
‘ensure that they and the school promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and support and help, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain’
The British values are :
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
We ensure that through our school aims, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching we promote respect and tolerance for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. As educators we have a duty to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. We value the importance of and support the current Ofsted guidance.
The promotion of modern British values and democracy is clearly evident within our school through the following :-

UN CRC Article 31: All children have a right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of activities.
UN CRC Article 15: Children have the right to meet together and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights.

Pupil Premium Funding
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not. Pupil Premium Funding is used to tackle disadvantage in order to reach the pupils who need it most.
Schools are currently given Pupil Premium funding of £1300 per pupil for those whose families who have registered for FSM. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years.Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (£1900), and children of service personnel (£300).
Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families. School are required to report this information.
At Wooden Hill we are committed to safeguarding our children at all times.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is the the Headteacher, Mrs Lagares and the Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Critchlow.

All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.
