British Values

Our Academy community considers the Fundamental British values to be:

At our Academy we prepare children for life in modern Britain. This can be seen in our Academy through:

  • Our ethos and teaching which supports British law

  • Making our school community aware of the difference between the law of the land and religious law

  • Our Aspirations curriculum which has a clear focus on the principles of building character and self worth amongst all our students, inspiring them to become positively engagement and commitment, and guiding them to become confidence to take action.
