Fundamental British Values

At St Peter’s we fully support the promotion of fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith, within the school environment and in the communities we serve.

We promote Fundamental British values in our everyday interactions with students, staff and external visitors to our school. This is embodied within the school mission statement, founded on Christian values when we develop the self-esteem, dignity and respect of all members of the community by concentrating on each person’s infinite worth in the eyes of God’

Through curriculum subjects such as English, history, sociology, politics but especially through RE, Citizenship, PHSE and assemblies, we teach and reinforce the fundamental laws of democracy, mutual respect and tolerance to all members of our community.
