Seahouses Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the role it has 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. It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Our school is dedicated to preparing students for the adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all of its students.The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools.
According to Ofsted, British values are:
- the rule of law;
- individual liberty;
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
British Values Statement
At Seahouses we promote ‘British Values’ through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, which permeates through the school’s curriculum and supports the development of the ‘whole child’. This development is most successful when those values and attitudes are promoted by all the stakeholders and provide a positive model of behaviour for our children.
