Traditional British Values at Stony Dean School
British values that were defined by central government in 2011 are ‘democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance towards those of different faiths’.
At Stony Dean School, everything we do in terms of the ethos we create and the curriculum we deliver is designed to support these values, each of which is covered in the statement above. At the same time, we acknowledge that these values are not exclusive to those who would describe themselves as “British” and do, in fact, represent the values to which every member of society should subscribe.
1. Recognising each child’s entitlement to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum.
2. Recognising each child’s entitlement to be taught by well-qualified and trained teachers.
3. Developing each child’s independence and self-advocacy.
4. Providing a safe, secure and happy environment for teaching and learning to take place.
5. Ensure maximum participation by parents, governors and other carers/agencies as required.
6. Realising the entitlement of all pupils to have their achievements recognised, recorded and reported.
7. Ensure that appropriate resources and facilities are available.
8. Ensure every pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
