Wow! Government is hearing about our Movement:
Lord Janner of Braunstone (Labour)
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of the values-based approach in education as taught in schools such the Chantry Primary School in Luton.
Lord Hill of Oareford (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Education; Conservative)
The department does not, as a rule, assess different approaches to education. All state schools are required to provide a balanced and broadly based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Schools are free to adopt a values-based education, such as the one used by Chantry Primary School, to develop an ethos of care and respect for themselves and others.
Chantry school is to be congratulated on its latest Ofsted report.
