As a school we are actively promoting values to live our lives by; as individuals, as a school and as a wider community. We do this through our school ethos, teaching, positive learning environment, policies and daily interactions. Our values were developed through a process of consultation with staff, students, parents, governors and others in our community. These are reflected within our strategic document 'Developing Minds for a Changing World'. Developing_minds_booklet.pdf our values are also laid out in our school prospectus DS Prospectus
The DfE has identified the following five values as 'British Values', Democracy, Rule of law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We believe the DfE's 'Fundamental British Values' are important and reflects the ethos of Dorothy Stringer School through a broad and balanced curriculum and through our extensive extra-curricular provision to develop the whole young person.
We have conducted an audit of where the 'British Values' are taught in our curriculum and this shows how they are delivered across all areas of the school. Every teacher has a role in highlighting the importance of these, and our values through their lessons.
The audit of where British Values are delivered in the curriculum is available here:
