Have passport, will travel!

As part of a new initiative to support the curriculum teaching of British Fundamental Values, teachers at the Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys in Chiswick have been busy handing out 'Pupil Passports' to their boys to send them on their way.

Each Year 2 boy at the Falcons Pre-Preparatory School has recently been handed their very own ‘Pupil Passport’, signaling the start of a new initiative that will be rolled out across the whole school shortly.

The new Pupil Passports have been devised for three main reasons:

  1. To embed the School’s core values of Courage, Curiosity and Care
  2. To encourage the boys to take ownership and pride of their school
  3. To promote positive contributions to school and life

The passports contain a series of tasks for the boys to complete on a weekly basis with regular checkpoints for boys to log their progress with the ultimate completion goal of rising through the ranks and becoming a ‘Platinum Ambassador’ for the school.

In addition to tasks linked to the school’s core values of Courage, Curiosity and Care, also included in their Passports are assignments designed to focus on Fundamental British Values. These assignments teach the boys about the necessity for Respect and Democracy, help them develop tolerance for those with different Faith and Beliefs, allow them to understand the importance of the Rule of Law and distinguish right from wrong, and appreciate the value of Individual Liberty (freedom of choice).

Mr Forbes, Head of the Falcons Pre-Preparatory School, commented: ‘The boys have loved taking ownership of their new passports which provides them with a new journey to embark upon, one which encourages them to be brave, stay curious and always care not just for themselves, but for others and the world around them.’
