British Values

Rugby

At Petersfield we are committed to the promotion of British Values through our Christian ethos and our spiritual, moral, social and cultural provision. We recognise the importance of our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain and ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out throughout our school curriculum. We also recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and actively promote and model these ideals, welcoming admissions from all those families entitled to education under British law regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, political or financial status. As well as actively promoting British values, the opposite also applies. We challenge children, staff or parents expressing opinions that are contrary to fundamental values including 'extremist' views, as part of our Prevent agenda.

These values are:

Democracy

UN CRC Article 12: Children have the right to say what they think should happen, when adults are making decisions that affect them, and to have their opinions taken into account.

The rule of law

UN CRC Article 19: Governments should ensure that children are properly cared for, and protect them from violence, abuse and neglect by their parents, or anyone else who looks after them.

Individual liberty

UN CRC Article 31: All children have a right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of activities.

UN CRC Article 15: Children have the right to meet together and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights.

Mutual respect

UN CRC Article 2: The Convention applies to everyone whatever their race, religion, abilities, whatever they think or say and whatever type of family they come from.

UN CRC Article 30: Children have a right to learn and use the language and customs of their families, whether these are shared by the majority of people in the country or not.

Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

UN CRC Article 14: Children have the right to think and believe what they want, and to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Parents should guide their children on these matters.
