British Values

At The Kingston Academy we uphold and teach pupils about British Values. We recognise that our community is increasingly a cultural melting pot, an invigorated blend of people from diverse cultures, communities and countries.  The success of this community is underpinned by enduring British values including:

  • freedom
  • tolerance
  • respect for the rule of law
  • belief in personal and social responsibility
  • respect for British institutions.

Our goal is to instill a sense of belonging to the wider community and the country where we live.  Our approach to upholding British Values is in accordance with the new OfSTED guidance, September 2014, which states that:

‘ the school should ensure that it promotes tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and supports and helps, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain’
