Abbot’s Way School is committed to working harmoniously and closely with its community and to celebrating the diversity of the UK.
We prepare students fully for a successful life in modern Britain and ensure that our school ethos, curriculum and approach to learning reflects and promotes British values.
These values are not exclusive to being British.
They have come to be accepted throughout the democratic world, to create an orderly society, in which individual members can feel safe, valued and can contribute to positively.
We exist collaboratively with our local community, recognising the variety of religious beliefs and faiths within it and the different structures which organisations provide.
Students are involved with local and school events, meeting different members of the community to appreciate the valuable contributions they make.
All curriculum leaders are aware of the importance of embedding British values through their learning programmes
We take opportunities to:
- acknowledge, celebrate and commemorate national events and anniversaries related to key events in Britain’s past
- join in with international sporting events and find out more about the countries that host them
- support a number of charities that are selected by the students and arrange fundraising events
- invite members of the local community to our school events.
We understand the role that our school has in helping prevent radicalisation and supporting our pupils in developing a world view, recognising Britain’s place within it.
British values are embedded across our Learn to Thrive curriculum and pastoral provision in order that our students achieve their aims and are able to apply / transfer them in a variety of contexts and scenarios
