The rule of law

The importance of laws whether they are those that govern the class, the school or the country are consistently reinforced throughout the school day, when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Each class is involved in developing their own set of ‘rules’ thus enabling pupils to engage in how decisions and laws come about under a democratic system.

Pupils are taught the value and reason behind the laws that govern and protect us, the responsibility that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service help reinforce this message.
