Values, Vision, Ethos

In accordance with the Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.

Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The Key Values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

In addition, at Highfield schools we also have specific school values which provide the principles by which we behave and act, helping us to live and learn happily together.  Each half term we focus on a different value but remembering the importance of them all.
