Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is "right" and "wrong", all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Ofsted (July 2019) understood our approach:
"Leaders make sure that pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. For example, pupils who are members of the school council learn about democracy first hand by experiencing the process of voting on particular issues. Other pupils are also involved through democratic decision-making in class. Older pupils have the opportunity to serve as ‘mini-police’. They undertake special training from police officers in order to promote pupils’ understanding of the role of police within their community. These activities help pupils to develop positive attitudes of citizenship and responsibility."
