At Aylesford School - Sports College, we take every opportunity to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. British values are not taught as a discreet subject but run through the very heart of all we do at Aylesford School – Sports College. These values are addressed predominantly through our delivery of the PSHE curriculum but also across the wider curriculum and in all we do as a school.
We have a wide range of extra-curricular events running throughout the year which engender the ethos of respect and tolerance where all students are encouraged to participate. We regularly hold student voice panel,s to gain the views of the students, ensuring all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes.
The school’s behaviour policy clearly demonstrates the promotion of British values and is implemented accordingly to ensure that all students become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background. This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
