Promoting British Values at The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy

 

The Department for Education has set out that all schools should actively promote fundamental British values.  These values are:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

 

 

Democracy: We have been working extremely hard to promote the student voice within our Academy by developing our School Council and promoting the role of the School Ambassador.  We aim to undertake an annual review of our communities’ opinions, student questionnaires will form part of this, in order to inform our Academy policies and decisions.

 

The Rule of Law: The importance of laws, whether they be for those that govern the class, the Academy, or the country are reinforced throughout our Academy day; promoted through assemblies, pastoral and tutor time and through our Academy Behaviour Policy which has as its focus the ‘Ready to Learn’ principles. We instil in our students the value and rationale  behind our laws – that they are there to protect us, keep us safe and that there are consequences when laws are broken and the health and safety of any member of our Academy community is put at risk.

 

Individual Liberty: We actively encourage our students to make choices.  Students are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely.  Whether it be through choice of challenge or through our Personal Best Programme or extra-curricular activities, students are given the freedom to make choices.

 

Mutual Respect: Our Academy ethos of Best Practice, Best Progress, Best Performance – Always’ is designed to promote a climate of positivity, teamwork and respect.  Respecting the work of others in our classes, respecting the work of our team and understanding that we seek the best performance from all our Academy community as we work together.  We encourage students to consider and appreciate viewpoints other than their own in a climate of mutual respect.

 

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs: Through assemblies, PSHE and RE, we aim to develop students understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and ( remove by) give them opportunities to experience that diversity.  Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying together with multi-faith assemblies are a regular feature at our Academy.

where members of the Christian, Muslim, Buddhist and the Royal British Legion shared with us what ‘Remembrance’ meant to them in our society today.

The Academy has identified three barriers to achievement that have historically hindered the progress and attainment of this group:

    • Poor attendance
    • Gaps in basic skills for core subjects (Numeracy/Literacy/Science)
    • Low aspirations and limited access to basic resources and facilities

 

In 2015-16 The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy will received £158,980 for pupil premium. The funding will be used to address the following:

 

Additional support in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science

Support for students to enable them to feel included - uniform, trips, resources etc

Additional Support for students including counselling and courses
