We promote British values through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education programmes. Our academy curricula supports the development of the whole child, and we recognise that such development is most successful when those values and attitudes are promoted by all staff and provide a model of behaviour for our pupils.
We are committed to educating our children and young people in their engagement and acceptance with the fundamental British values, and we aim to support them in developing and demonstrating skills and attitudes that will allow them to fully participate and positively contribute to life in modern Britain.
We ensure that fundamental British values are reflected in our ethos and implemented effectively in our academies.
We take swift action to suspend anyone from office who undermines these values. This may include considering whether to permanently remove an individual from office if they act in this manner.
We adhere to the Department for Education’s guidance for maintained schools:
Promoting fundamental British values as part of SMSC in schools
We recognise that our academies’ promotion and delivery of British values will be considered and will influence inspectors’ judgement on the effectiveness of leadership and management – as outlined in the governance handbook and competency framework and the education inspection framework.
