British Values & SMSC at St. James’ C of E Academy
The DfE has recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014. At St James Academy these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways:
How we promote British values
I particularly enjoy RE as I like learning more about God and Jesus, there is more and more to learn every day.
My favourite subject is maths because it is fun as well as challenging!
I love the exciting trips that we go on, they make me think about the future and my future career.
I learn something new every day, then I like to go home and do more research, particularly about out topic.
The books we read in school have inspired me to read more at home; I really enjoy reading every day.
St James is like one big family, we look after each other and I feel safe here.
