British Values

We believe that our school vision is entirely consistent with promoting fundamental British values and preparing children for life in modern Britain.

At St Jérôme School, in the area of British values, we seek to:

  • Enable children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • enable children to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
  • encourage children to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
  • enable children to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
  • further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling children to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures
  • encourage respect for other people
  • encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England
