British Values

Our vision for promoting British Values 

At CHS we recognise not only the importance of allowing students to flourish academically but we also embrace our wider role in preparing them for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum. Part of our role in that preparation is ensuring that we promote and reinforce British values to our students.

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and considered them to be democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. At CHS these values will be reinforced in a pervasive manner and permeate the school community.

The examples that follow are an indication of some of the many ways we will seek to embed British values at CHS and should be seen as an indication of our approach rather than an exhaustive list.

Democracy

At CHS the principle of democracy will be consistently reinforced, with the democratic process being employed for important decisions within the school community, for instance, elections being held for our Head Boy and Girl and prefects. The principle of democracy will be explored in History and Religious Studies as well as in form time and assemblies.

 

The rule of law

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, will be consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Students will be taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service, and Magistrates will be regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

 

Individual liberty

Within CHS, students will actively be encouraged to make independent choices, knowing that they are in a safe, secure and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for students to make choices safety, through the provision of a safe environment and empowering education.  Students will be encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and receive advice about how to exercise these safely, for example through our exploration of E-Safety in Computing and form time activities.

 

Mutual respect

Respect is at the core of our school ethos and is modelled by students and staff alike. The school promotes respect for others and this is reiterated through our classroom and learning environments. In line with our commitment to democracy students at CHS will always able to voice their opinions and we will foster an environment where students are safe to disagree with each other. Mutual respect will be embraced throughout the curriculum from the concept of ‘fair play’ in PE to a number of ‘buddy’ programmes which promote mutual respect between students across different year groups within the school.

 

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

This will be achieved through equipping students with the ability to understand their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity within the school community.  Our Religious Studies curriculum will provide a broad and balanced education on a range of faiths, religions and cultures.

Should you feel that the school is not meeting this requirement, you should contact the school office and request to express your concerns with the Headteacher. Likewise, if you feel that anyone working at the school is undermining these values you should report this to the Headteacher.
