Tolerance of Others

BV green

Our broad and balanced curriculum encompassing our RE teaching and Learning Journey themes allows us to offer learning which is culturally rich and diverse and in which major religions are studied and respected.  Through our curriculum and daily school life, we aim to support our pupils in developing an understanding that we live in a diverse world. 

Our pupils understand that people have different faiths and beliefs and that this allows us to ask interesting questions and to develop our knowledge further.    Through their time at Pebsham, we support our pupils to become knowledgeable and understanding citizens of our future Britain.

Pupils demonstrate this value though many aspects of their daily lives and time at our school, listed below are a few examples:


  • We celebrated World Religion Day.
  • We follow our Golden Value.  We have learnt about this value in many different religions.
  • We learn about Divali and make Diva lamps in Year 5.
