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, while still maintaining our distinctive Christian nature. Children speak positively about this and value the similarities and differences of our diverse community.
British values underpin our work in school and we continually promote these values through our curriculum, our teaching and our learning strategies. We teach pupils to respect the laws of our country and the rules of our school. We actively promote and model tolerance 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 respect and tolerance, 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 law.
The Key Values are:
• rule of law
• individual liberty
• mutual respect
• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
