The Very Best We Can Be

The Rule Of Law

The Rule of Law


  • Ensure school rules and expectations are clear and fair by discussing these with pupils and establishing classroom rules with the pupils themselves.
  • Help pupils to distinguish right from wrong during everyday interactions and discussions of stories, fables and other literary materials.
  • Help pupils to respect the law and the basis on which it is made by showing how rules help everyone to interact in an orderly and fair manner and protect the vulnerable in society.
  • Help pupils to understand that living under the rule of law protects individuals.
  • Include visits from the police in the curriculum. We have regular sessions with the Community Police Officers and the pupils know them by name.
  • Teach pupils aspects of both civil and criminal law and discuss how this might differ from some religious laws. We have links with the community police.
  • Develop restorative justice approaches to resolve conflicts as part of sanctions in our approach to behaviour.
