Paradis College

British Values

British Values
Our values at Paradis College are the core of the school ethos, being promoted not only through our curriculum and its content, but also every day, with every aspect that are students are surrounded by. We understand the vital role that we must play in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school community are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly or illegally influence them.
We promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We recognise that these values can only be maintained and developed by active engagement of citizens in democratic, lawful and respectful institutions and processes, of which our school is one element.
We believe that sharing our values with parents, carers and our community is essential in supporting the children through their journey in school and life. We acknowledge and understand the importance of the role that our community has to play and appreciate the need to inform them of the values work that we do. We do this through our school website and facebook page, school collective assemblies, and inviting parents and carers to share in the life of the school.

Mesajul directorului

Când am lansat proiectul educațional Paradis în 2005, aveam deja mulți ani de experiență didactică și managerială și simțeam de multă vreme nevoia unei schimbări în sistemul educațional. Nevoia a devenit acută în momentul în care am devenit mamă și am înțeles cât de importantă este educația personalizată care pune în centrul ei copilul ca întreg, preocupându-se în mod constant de fericirea, motivația și formarea armonioasă a personalității acestuia.
