Promoting British Values

 

The Wilmslow Academy takes opportunities to promote British Values, defined by the government as the following:

 

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

 

In actively promoting British Values, we focus on, and are able to show how our work with pupils is effective in embedding fundamental British values. Actively promoting, also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including 'extremist' views.

 

Statement of British Values - The department for Education has issued guidance to schools regarding their duty in promoting British Values.
