British Values At All Saints
Our children come from diverse backgrounds, many from faiths other than Christianity or no faith. The school community celebrates this diversity, keeping to our vision of loving all our neighbours, by maintaining our distinctive Christian nature while actively seeking out commonalities across the school community. Children speak positively about this and value the similarities and differences of our diversity; diversity which gives the school community its strength.
British values underpin our work in school and we continually promote these values through our vision, curriculum, teaching and learning strategies. We teach pupils to respect the laws of our country, the rules of our school and that, in wider society, we all have a part to play and should be respected, irrespective of whoever or whatever we are as individuals. We actively promote and model respect of different faiths and beliefs. Democracy, free speech and personal liberty are at the heart of our school life.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with Department for Education expectations, we aim to actively promote British values at All Saints to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds with mutual respect and acceptance, to understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its laws.
Our Key British Values are:
• rule of law;
• individual liberty;
• mutual respect;
• acceptance of those of different faiths and beliefs
