Promoting Fundamental British Values and Diversity.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is "right" and "wrong", all people living in England are subject to its law.

Rainbow Flag Award
As a school we have recently achieved the Rainbow Flag Award. We were accepted onto the programme after a highly competitive selection process based on the work that was already happening within our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural curriculum run by Miss Pickup. This award demonstrates that as a school we have a strong commitment to improve the lives of all the young people based around focused initiatives to ensure equality and support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) inclusion. The idea behind the award is to foster a positive whole school approach to educating about equality and LGBT inclusion.
Currently three teachers, Miss Pickup, Mr Perrin and Mrs Morrison have received initial training from the Proud Trust who run the award and then the rest of the staff have been trained within staff meetings. The aim of this is to help combat any homophobic, biphobic or transphobic (HBT) bullying that staff may come across in school and to help support any children who may need it.
