British Values

British values and excellent moral behaviours are at the heart of our school ethos. Slingsby School Values for Life encourage our children to be confident, tolerant and resilient. We have extremely high expectations that our children will be well behaved, well-mannered, empathetic and inclusive at all times.

We also work with the York/Selby Magistrates Court to foster the understanding of right and wrong. The children also learn about local, national and global issues and learn about diversity and opportunity.

The children are strongly encouraged to draw from faith, whatever that may be, and understand that we all live in different ways.

Our children are also taught to be confident in their own views without falling out, an important skill to take through to adulthood.

We have worked closely with the Archbishop of York and his Youth Trust Award Scheme. This involves the children working on community projects.
