Promoting Fundamental British Values in School
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote Fundamental 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 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 English law.
The Key Fundamental British Values our children learn about in school are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
All Saints is a diverse school with a high percentage of families coming from a country outside of the UK. We actively promote diversity through our celebrations of different faiths and cultures. Religious Education lessons and PSHE lessons reinforce messages of tolerance and respect for others. Members of different faiths and religions are encouraged to share their knowledge within school and the children visit places of worship that are important to different faiths.
At All Saints we actively challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views. We also challenge racism, sexism and homophobia and expect everyone within our community to respect the British laws of the land.
