British Values

At Woodbridge Park Education Service, we have determined “British Values” to be:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  •  Individual liberty
  •  Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs


As a school we aim to develop and nurture these by:
1) Planning a vibrant, engaging assembly programme with core ethical values and
beliefs at its heart
2)  A well-structured Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship education programme
which addresses all of the requirements of the programmes of study (looking at
Democracy, Freedom, the rule of law, Human Rights and responsibilities)
Effective and well-managed School Council enabling students to actively
participate in the democratic process
3) A broad and balanced curriculum which addresses many of these core values
across a range of subject areas
4) Having a clearly communicated and consistently applied Behaviour Policy so
that students understand what is expected of them and the consequences of both
meeting and failing to meet these expectations
5) A Code of Conduct which is regularly referred to and communicated with
students, reiterating that we are a school community built on mutual respect and
6)  Adopting restorative approaches, where possible, to resolve any difficulties
between members of our school community
7) Having a rigorous commitment to student safety (for example: trips and visits
policy and procedures, Safeguarding procedures, Code of Conduct and Health
and Safety procedures)
