Promoting British Values
Sir Jonathan North Community College is committed to serving its community. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. We also understand the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the college are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
Sir Jonathan North community College follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. We are dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that we promote and reinforce British values to all of our students.
The government emphasises that we need to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
The five British Values are:
The rule of law
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
The college uses strategies within the National Curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for students.
