Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs


Our pupils know and understand that it is expected and imperative that respect is shown to everyone, whatever differences we may have, and to everything, whether it is a school resource, a religious belief or whatever. Children learn that their behaviour choices have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community should treat each other with respect.


Specific examples of how we at The Berkeley we enhance pupils understanding and respect for different faiths and beliefs are:


  • through Religious Education and other lessons where we might develop awareness and appreciation of other cultures – in English through fiction and in Art by considering culture from other parts of the world, for example
  • enjoying a depth of study during  Themed Weeks, where sometimes we will celebrate and enjoy learning about the differences in countries and cultures around the world, for example through topics such as the Olympics and World Cup to study and learn about life and culture in countries such as Brazil.
