We promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We embed these values in everything we do and sometimes promoting these values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values – these actions could be from staff, parents or children. We encourage each member of our school to have a voice and ensure that it is listened to and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes such as a school council whose members are voted for by the pupils.
As part of our PREVENT duty, all publicly-funded schools in England are required by law to teach a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. They must also promote community cohesion.
