Cultural Development

Throughout the school, individuality is actively encouraged. Pupils are encouraged to make their own decisions about all aspects of school life based on their own personal interests, strengths and values. The curriculum is inspiring. Pupils very quickly develop a love of learning and are eager for more. Pupils have a strong sense of right and wrong which underpins the outstanding behaviour evident in the school. Pupils are proud to be part of the school and enthusiastically join in with school performances and extra-curricular activities.

British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and 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:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
