British Values

The Prevent Strategy, released in 2011 to combat extremism in the UK, defined “British values” as the promotion of “democracy, rule of law, equality of opportunity, freedom of speech and the rights of all men and women to live free from persecution of any kind”.

Our Academy aims to prepare pupils positively for life in modern Britain and promotes the fundamental British values of:


The rule of law

Individual liberty

Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

British Values are entwined within our school curriculum, please look at our Policy below to see how we incorporate them.
