    Example British Values Statement
    _____________ Academy is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multicultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

    It follows equal opportunities guidance, and will not tolerate discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. _______. Academy is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.

    The government defined British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.

    The five key British values are:

    The rule of law
    Individual liberty
    Mutual respect
    Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

    In school we promote the importance of democracy through:

    School Council
    Youth Parliament
    Mock elections
    Student voice
    Collaborative working
    Debating Club
    Visits by local and national politicians

    The Rule of the Law
    In school we promote the importance of the rule of the law by:

    A clearly structured behaviour Policy
    School Code of Conduct
    Accountability is stressed to all stakeholders including staff (Teacher’s Standards), students (Staff Code of Conduct), and Governors [Governors’ Code of Conduct.
    The school liaises closely with outside agencies including the Police and Social Services when appropriate.
    The Acceptable Use Policy is used to promote the correct use of the internet.
    The school has a robust Safeguarding Policy.
    Students are taught the value and reasons behind laws; that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when rules are broken.

    Individual Liberty
    In school we promote the importance of individual liberty through:

    Students are introduced to a range of beliefs and experiences so that they are able to make more informed choices for themselves.
    Students are able to make choices about the courses they will study at Key Stage 4.
    The provision of extra-curricular activities and clubs, including extended studies.
    Students choose their own work experience placements.
    Students are taught the knowledge and skills to broaden their choices about future work, travel and education.
    Students are encouraged to voice views in lesson in a formative manner.

    Mutual respect
    In school we promote the importance of mutual respect through:

    Behaviour Policy
    Code of Conduct
    Equal Opportunities Policy
    E-safety Guidance
    The publishing and enforcement of smart dress code.
    Debating Club
    Duke of Edinburgh award programme
    The curriculum helps students to learn about a wide range of people, cultures and beliefs and so develops students’ ability to make informed decisions, be confident in their own identity and understand and respect that of others.

    Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
    In school we promote the importance of tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs through:

    Discussions on prejudices in RE and PSHE
    PSHE lessons on current events
    All students are regularly asked if they feel safe in school.
