At Abbey Gates Primary School we are committed to serving our local community and endeavour to prepare our children to live in the wider community. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. We also understand the vital role we have 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.
We are dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that we promote and reinforce British and Human Values to all of our pupils.
The government set out its definition of 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
We use strategies within the national curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for pupils. The examples that follow show some of the ways we seek to promote British and Human Values.
