Promoting Fundamental Values
Sir Jonathan North 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 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 Fundamental Values to all of our students.
The government emphasises that we need to ensure that key ‘Fundamental Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of Fundamental Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
The five Fundamental 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.
