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:
• rule of law
• individual liberty
• mutual respect
• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Promoting British Values at Camulos Academy
The DfE published guidelines in 2014 for schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. – DfE, November 2014.
At Camulos Academy, we meet the requirements of the Education Act 2002 (section 78) by promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils through various means. Through SMSC provision we actively promote British Values.
All REAch2 schools develop a bespoke programme to deliver on the Government’s expectation of British Values. This will be taught both explicitly and discretely, and as is age-appropriate.
