Promoting British Values
Anthony Gell School is committed to serving its community. It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group regardless of the individuals’ faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political status, financial status, or similar. Anthony Gell School is 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. Anthony Gell School understands the vital 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.
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.
The five British Values are:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
The school uses strategies within the National Curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for students. The examples that follow show some of the many ways Anthony Gell School seeks to embed British values.
