British Values

The Department for Education introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British
Values more actively from September 2014, and to ensure they are taught in schools.

St. Hild’s Church of England School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also 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.

Full British Values Statement


It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. St. Hild’s Church of England School is dedicated to preparing pupils for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values. It is our duty as an educational establishment to develop pupils into well-rounded individuals who have the skills and adaptability to continue with further study and then into the world of work. We believe that it is our duty to help pupils to develop their own moral judgements, based on exposure to different viewpoints, religions and cultures.
