British values are part of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Fundamental British Values are considered to be:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
As such we will:
- encourage pupils to respect fundamental British values
- not promote extremist views, or partisan political views
- offer pupils a balanced presentation of views when political issues are brought to their attention
We will do this by:
- Enabling students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
- Enabling students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
- Encouraging students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
- Enabling students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
- Furthering tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures
- Encouraging respect for other people
- Encouraging respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.
- Encouraging respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.
