British Values

In accordance with the Department of 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 people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The key values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

During lockdown our children decided to support a range of charities including Ferne Animal Sanctuary, Children In Need and the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

During lockdown our children wrote poems and messages for the Emergency Services.

The Rule of Law

UN CRC Article 19: Governments should ensure that children are properly cared for, and protect them from violence, abuse and neglect by their parents, or anyone else who looks after them.

Democracy

Mutual Respect

Tolerance

UN CRC Article 14: Children have the right to think and believe what they want, and to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Parents should guide their children on these matters.
