British Values


British Values
 
"Pupils benefit from a well-developed curriculum for religious education.
This makes a major contribution to preparing pupils for life in modern Britain
and teaching them about British values."
                                                                                                Ofsted December 2017


The DfE have reinforced the need to “create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
 

In our diverse Catholic Community at St Mary's, which is representative of the Universal Church, these values are reinforced regularly and underpinned by our Christian ethos.


We follow the Department for Education's latest guidance 'The Prevent duty' (June 2015)

“The Catholic school prepares pupils for life in multi-cultural, multi-faith society, interconnected through globalisation and technology which calls forth challenges of involvement, service and citizenship.  The Church calls every person to contribute to the common good of society.” 
From Our Catholic Schools: their Identity and their Purpose
