British Values

The Department for Education requires schools “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.”

Watling Academy is dedicated to fostering core British values via a variety of educational activities, as well as the articulation and demonstration of these principles. Our social, moral, spiritual, and cultural (SMSC) education pervades the school’s assemblies, curriculum, ethos, student voice, teaching and learning, and dedication to inclusiveness.

Watling Academy’s approach to fostering essential British values ensures that no one is discriminated against because of their faith, race, gender, sexuality, political or socioeconomic position, or other factors.
