British Values

British values

Harris Academy St. John’s Wood is committed to working closely with its community and celebrating the diversity of the UK.

We aim to prepare students for life in modern Britain and to ensure that our school ethos, curriculum and approaches to teaching and learning reflect and promote British values. We want the education we provide to help develop our students into global ambassadors.

We recognise that these values are not exclusive to being British and that they have come to be accepted throughout the democratic world as the method of creating an orderly society in which individual members can feel safe and valued, and to which they can contribute for the good of themselves and others.

We work alongside our local community and recognise the variety of religious beliefs within it. Students take part in local events and meet different members of the community to appreciate the valuable contributions they make. We also celebrate different faiths and religious festivals in school. 

All subject departments are aware of the importance of transmitting British values through their curriculum content. We also offer many other opportunities through enrichment activities, drop down days, trips, tutor time, and PSHRE to enhance British Values within our students.

We take opportunities to:

  • acknowledge, celebrate and commemorate national events and anniversaries related to key events in Britain’s past
  • join in with international sporting events and find out more about the countries that host them
  • support a number of charities that are selected by the students and arrange fundraising events
  • invite members of the local community to our school events
  • develop partnerships with the international world of business and enterprise which enhances the educational experience for all students.

We understand the role that our school has in helping prevent radicalisation and supporting our students in developing a world view, recognising Britain’s place within it.

The British values are:

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
