British Values

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:

Democracy:

Democracy can be seen as a state of society characterised by equality of rights and privileges.  It can also refer to our nation's electoral systems.

 

Rule of Law:

All people and institutions are subject to and accountable to law that is fairly applied and enforced.

 

Individual Liberty:

Individual liberty suggests the free exercise of rights generally seen as outside Government control.

 

Mutual Respect:

The proper regard for an individual's dignity, which is reciprocated.

 

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs:

A fair, objective and permissive attitude to those whose faith and beliefs may differ from one's own.
