Fundamental British Values
All schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. At Ivy House School, we want to ensure that all children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who are included in all areas and understand the importance of treating others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.
We ensure that our curriculum includes opportunities to develop work against the areas of the values; this includes providing all pupils with a voice that is listened to, and using extra-curricular activities.
