This document is about the way that our school promotes fundamental British values. About Democracy, the rule of law and peoples individual liberty. About mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths (no faith), beliefs and cultures.

It will explain how the curriculum in school prepares all our pupils for their future lives in society, so they can take full advantage of their opportunities, understand their responsibilities and enjoy the positive experiences awaiting them in modern Britain.

We also work hard with our pupils to promote their Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We teach them about tolerance and respect for all people from all faiths, (no faith) and beliefs, races, genders, sexual orientations, ages and abilities.

The Curriculum

All those working in the school are driven by a high moral purpose, our practices are consistent and inclusive and these things underpin all the school does.

Our statement, ‘Learn, Grow, Thrive’, our bill of rights (written by the pupils, parents and staff), our code of conduct and our school rules, clearly explain our attitudes and expectations of those within our school community. All of our staff strive to be good role models for our pupils and also seek to practice the fundamental British values of mutual respect and tolerance in all of their daily work.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strongly promoted every day and our starting point is always the pupils own individual needs and interests. All of our pupils are constantly given opportunities to experience and practice democracy and the acceptance of ‘difference’ in as many ways as possible across the full range of the curriculum.

There are specific subjects which include content on Promoting British Values.

  • Democracy and the rule of law and individual liberty – Citizenship, Personal, Social and Health development, Religious education, careers guidance and Social communication and interaction. We also have a school council, which is democratically elected and collective worship,
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths, beliefs and cultures. – Personal, Social and Health development, Religious education, social communication and interaction, collective worship and multi-cultural days and celebrations.
  • Preparing pupils for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life in modern Britain – Personal, Social and Health development, work related learning, learning for life and careers guidance.
  • Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development – this is promoted across all subjects in the curriculum and particularly in Religious education, collective worship, assemblies, Personal, Social and Health development and social communication and interaction.
