At Boarshaw Community Primary School, we are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that our pupils develop a strong sense of moral and social responsibility. We believe that we need to prepare our pupils for life in modern Britain and we do this by embracing the five themes: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of culture, faith and others.

Each year Boarshaw Primary celebrates Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday where classes make pancakes and have the chance to taste their creations! Our pupils are taught about how Shrove Tuesday was important in the Christian calendar and its link with Easter.
World Religion Day
This was a brilliant day in school where every class studied a different religion and learnt about customs / traditions in that religion. We recognise that valuing other people's beliefs, traditions and customs is important to British people.
