Fundamental British Values

These include:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.


All of which fall within our PSHE curriculum in which we aim to:.

  •  enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of Britain
  • encourage 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
  • enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in Britain
  • develop further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures
  • encourage respect for other people
  • encourage 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 Britain
  • encourage respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.

Protected characteristics:

It is against the law to discriminate against anyone because of:

  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment
  • Sex
  • Age
  • Marriage or civil partnership
  • Pregnancy or maternity
  • Religion or belief

As a school we are working hard to ensure our students understand these characteristics and develop into supportive, informed and respectful students.


We also run well-attended Race On and Kindness groups as lunch time clubs as well as have Diversity prefects; these students work with staff to ensure our curriculum is appropriate for our students, in our setting.
