Holy Family Catholic Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom. We understand and embrace 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.
Holy Family 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. As a school, we are dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.
The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values were reiterated in 2014.
The four British Values are:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Our school uses strategies within the National Curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for students.
