At Brettenham, we promote fundamental British values through our ethos, the curriculum, our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, and through our work as a Rights Respecting School.
The five British Values are:
The rule of law.
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
Examples of the understanding and knowledge pupils are expected to learn include:
an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination
