Promoting fundamental British Values

In accordance with the Department for Education, we aim to actively promote British values in school to ensure that young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance, and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The key values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

How this is done at Orchard Head:

  • Focusing on and showing how the school’s work is effective in securing these values
  • Challenging pupils, staff or parents/carers who express opinions contrary to British values
