At Hutton Rudby Primary School, we work together to have fun, help friends, share, build confidence and be respectful. Our school’s vision keeps the children at the heart of everything we do, we work together with them to provide an education which will prepare them as lifelong learners, ready to overcome challenges as they journey into the big, wide world. Our vision is centred around: Culture and Community, Healthy Body and Mind, Individual Excellence, Lifelong Learners and Determination (CHILD).

At Hutton Rudby, we use Picture News as a weekly resource along with our PSHCE lessons. From Reception to Year 6, children love the Picture News resource to learn about current events around the world. We like to record children’s responses in our whole-class ‘CHILD’ books. This is differentiated based on the age group of our children. For instance, Reception children’s responses are recorded by staff which becomes more independent as they gradually move up the school. This fantastic resource provides opportunity for discussion and debate, allowing children to think about themselves and others. Children are learning to express their thoughts and feelings, unlocking key vocabulary about their emotions.

Here are some of the inspirational quotes we have had from our children after a covering recent Picture News…

What does it mean to be brave?

“You can’t be brave unless you are afraid first.” -Rupert, Reception

“If you are brave you can help save the world.” -Jillson, Year 2

“If you are brave and a good leader, good things will happen to you.” -Henry, Year 4

Picture News Spring Term Coverage

Picture News (2021-2022)

Our Picture News resources link directly to various British Values each week.

British Values

At Hutton Rudby Primary School we are committed to providing every child with an excellent education.

We believe in following the Government’s guidelines:

  • “Schools should 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.”
  • “Pupils must be encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.”
  • “It is expected that pupils should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.”

In line with Government requirements, at Hutton Rudby Primary School we have developed the curriculum in order to illustrate our commitment to ‘British Values’.  We value the diversity and differences of all our pupils and celebrate this through our culture, ethos, approach to lessons and our respectful relationships we promote.  Commitment and celebration of diversity makes us collectively stronger, tolerant and respectful to all.

Our curriculum is devoted to British Values. We use the ‘Picture news’ learning resources and encourage transparency and openness in pupil lead discussions about current affairs news topics each week, linked to an individual British Value.

Additionally, in Key Stage 2, pupils this year will undertake a topic about World War 1 and 2 and their impact upon our society, then and now.  Remembrance Day is commemorated and a two minute’s silence is observed. Throughout the school, a number of influential people and eras are studied in our Cornerstones curriculum that supports all aspects of modern day Britain.

We have read the Government’s Paper on “Promoting fundamental British values as part of SMSC in Schools” (November 2014). It outlines the Departmental advice for maintained schools from the Department for Education. Download the document
