Heber’s Values and British Values

We are a Values Based Learning Community. Our core values are:

Responsibility
Thoughtfulness
Resilience

Schools have an obligation to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of their pupils. There is also a specific requirement to actively promote fundamental British values.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum designed to fulfil our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through our Values-based philosophy that infuses the ethos and work of the school. These British Values are:

Mutual Respect and the Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and outlooks
Democracy
The Rule of Law
Individual Liberty

All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts. Our children embrace these values with enthusiasm and demonstrate understanding of how to apply them in their everyday lives.
