Haslingden St James' CEP School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the UK. It understands the vital role it has in ensuring that individuals in school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to illegally influence them.
It follows equal opportunities guidance to ensure there is no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, political or financial status or anything similar.
Our school is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond formal education and ensuring it promotes British Values in all its students.
The Government emphasises that schools are required that 'British Values' are taught in all UK schools, these are set out in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
The five British Values are:
The rule of law
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
The school uses strategies within the National Curriculum and beyond to ensure these are delivered and embedded within the school ethos.
St James' School strives endlessly to ensure that the children leave with the strongest foundation of values upon which to build a successful life and make a worthwhile contribution to our society.
