The Department for Education states that there is a need: ‘To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’
The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:
Four Acres Academy reflects British values in all that we do. Our stated aims, vision and values illustrate the clearly embedded foundation of which our ethos is an expression. We aim to nurture our children so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world. We encourage our children to be open-minded, independent individuals, showing respect for themselves and others in our school, our local community and the wider world.
