We actively British Values in school, whether in lessons or assemblies or the general ethos. We openly embrace the values of:
Mutual Respect & Tolerance of those with other faiths and beliefs
Rule of Law
Weekly British Values
We have been having a different ethos each week for years. These have been based on the SEAL programme that we have been following in PSHCE. Now, we have changed this to follow the British Values' agenda. This week the following posters may be seen in every classroom and the week's whole school assemblies are based on these. The second poster links the British Value of Mutual Respect and Tolerance with our RE themes about celebrating the festivals and customs of other religions and cultures around the world.
All of our staff have had training on the new 'Prevent' duty that all schools need. This is about safeguarding children and young people from radicalisation.
Educate Against Hate
You may have seen in the media that the Government have launched a new website to give practical advice on protecting young people from extremism and radicalisation. This site was officially launched by the Education secretary Nicky Morgan.
