Core Values / British Values

We are proud that our school is an open and welcoming place to be. We encourage parents, carers and a wide variety of other adults to help us *Sparkle and Shine* in a variety of ways. We aim to ensure that our children benefit from many enriching opportunities and as much support as possible, within a consistently safe and secure environment.


Everyone must show mutual respect for:

  • democracy - through encouraging turn taking and valuing the views of others
  • the rule of law - through promoting agreed rules and expectations and concepts of right and wrong
  • individual liberty - through actively encouraging individual choices in a safe, supportive environment
  • those with different faiths and beliefs and those without faith - through considerate presentation of ideas and  

            information as personal views without prejudice
