Promotion of British Values

At Ashgate Croft School we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance towards those with different faiths and beliefs. What this looks like at Ashgate Croft School:

  • We place a great emphasis on communication and in supporting students to make choices and have their opinion heard.
  • We encourage students to have their say in matters that concern them in school. We do this by having an active school council and having a student rep on the anti-bullying working party/group.
  • All staff are PROACT-Scipr-UK trained. They support and encourage students to manage their own behaviour and develop positive attitudes towards each other. Most students in school have an Individual Behaviour Plan.
  • As a school we are actively involved within our local community. All the Upper Department classes access facilities in the local community such as churches, shops and cafes at least once a week. A large part of our community work is supporting students to develop their knowledge of how to act in a socially appropriate manner in different settings.
  • Ashgate Croft School is a UNICEF 'Rights Respecting School' and has been awarded Level 1. As part of our aims to promote a happy and successful school, we will continue to work as a UNICEF “Rights Respecting School”.
  • These values are also embedded within our curriculum across all Key Stages.
