Montpelier children can use a range of social skills and are taught to appreciate diverse viewpoints. Through school-based programmes that our children participate in, we aim to develop the importance of volunteering and cooperation.
Engagement with the ‘British values’ of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance are central to the development of children at Montpelier. In all aspects of personal development, we hope to embed the skills of effective conflict resolution as children navigate their way through their lives now and in future.
Montpelier is an international school, and the appreciation of cultural influences is part of its everyday fabric. However, we want our children to appreciate the value of cultural diversity once they leave the school and perhaps enter settings and workplaces which are more monocultural in their outlook.
We believe it is important to appreciate the role of Britain’s parliamentary system, past and present. Again, understanding, accepting, respecting and celebrating diversity is one of Montpelier’s strengths and this is most successful when participating in culture opportunities in and beyond school.
