British Values

At The Austen Academy we will be promoting the Core British Values in our daily teaching.


These core values are:


Rule of Law

Tolerance of cultures and religions

Mutual respect



We will do this as appropriate to the pupil’s age and understanding and as part of our SMSC curriculum and social context teaching, and also holistically throughout the school day.


We will be actively using school processes to give examples of how these core values work. Examples will be: 

  • developing pupil voice and understanding that each person is valued
  • a school council system
  •  participation in elections and parliamentary influence,
  • debates
  • helping pupils understand a range of faiths
  • extra-curricular activities which particularly promote British values such as clubs and societies run by students
