Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

British Values

Through our curriculum we promote and champion British Values:

The list below describes the understanding and knowledge we expect of students as a result of promoting fundamental British values:

  • an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
  • an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety
  • an understanding that there is a separation of power between the executive and the judiciary and that while some public bodies such as the police and army can be held to account through Parliament, others such as the courts maintain independence
  • an understanding that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
  • an acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none), should be accepted and tolerated and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
  • an understanding of the importance of identifying and combating discrimination
