At the heart of our academy is a firm set of values which ensure that pupils develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. These values are promoted via our personal, social, health, citizenship and economic (PSHCE) education programme, our prefect and house systems, the curriculum we deliver to our pupils, and the opportunities we offer outside of the curriculum.
We take opportunities to promote the areas currently identified as British Values (individual liberty, democracy, the law, mutual respect and tolerance) within the curriculum and the wider ethos of the academy. Specific assemblies devoted to pupil values and well being follow an annual plan of delivery and pupil involvement. Curriculum planning also ensures we prepare our pupils for life in a modern multicultural country. The children also run ‘Take Over Day’ where they take on our roles of responsibility across the academy for the day.
Our recent ‘Investors In Pupils’ award is testament to the work we do in this area, and one which we are very proud of. We were given ‘no areas of development’.
We are also a partner school with the National Holocaust Centre and Museum. We are also a Unicef bronze-award ‘Rights Respecting School’.
