Global Virtues has been celebrated at Stockton Primary school last week, fitting with our overall Stowe Valley Multi Academy trust message of 'Making small steps for a big difference.'
In November 2014, the UK Government published advice for the promotion of Global Virtues in schools. The government set out a definition of Global Virtues comprising of the following:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
As an outstanding school, we at Stowe Valley Multi Academy, actively seek to promote these virtues within an atmosphere of respect, tolerance and the celebration of difference.
As part of our on going promotion of these virtues both Southam College and Bilton School have joined forces to celebrate these local, national and international virtues. As part of our Global Virtues week, we held a number of events across both schools, including Bhangra dancing, food tasting, food bank visits and students visited a local homeless shelter.
