At Djanogly Northgate Academy we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through our focus on our 5Rs Learning Powers (Respect, Relationships, Reflection, Resourcefulness and Resilience). These form a large part of the ethos and work of the academy. You can find out more about them on our Curriculum page. At the beginning of each half term, during our Learning Powers Day, every class focuses on our 5Rs to introduce a theme which builds on previous learning and builds children's understanding and application of these qualities. These are then followed up regularly during the term with circle time activities. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
All curriculum areas provide opportunities for furthering understanding of these concepts and every opportunity is taken to deepen and develop understanding - an example is through the learning in Y2 about Rosa parks and in Y6 with the 'Little Freak' English theme. The academy makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their own and their local community through both the taught curriculum, a range of visits and visitors and through opportunities to share their own experiences in a culturally diverse academy.
