As a school we have spoken to the children in Key Stage 2 regarding the London terror attack. We focused upon British Values and how to be a good citizen and how to stand together as a community.
Thank you to Mr Dixon from Padiham Green for providing the resource.

Primary Schools and P4S
Throughout Primary Education, we believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issues of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society. Providing a safe learning environment in which children can raise controversial questions and concerns without fear of reprimand or ridicule and explore boundaries of what is acceptable will engender an open attitude to multi cultural and race issues.
The resources below have been created for Primary schools to support delivery in line with the aims of the revised Prevent Strategy issued in July 2015. The resources should be used to complement the advice issued by the DfE regarding ‘Promoting fundamental British Values through SMSC’ released in late 2014. The materials are planned for KS1 and KS2 pupils and sit alongside the Lancashire P4S KS3/4 materials. Key messages are common to both sets of resources.
These resources are based on the principle that people should treat everyone with respect whatever their race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, special need or disability. The resources have been created to support teachers to engage children in promoting a positive attitude to others with a focus on shared values, whilst developing a high regard for themselves. By building resilience and self esteem, children are encouraged to stand firm and be positive about others and not be influenced by negative peer pressure they may encounter. Through education, we can enable children to think for themselves by providing valuable opportunities for discussing, debating, researching and questioning, set within the context of learning based on sound knowledge and understanding.
