At The Kassia Academy, we actively promote positive, inclusive values.
These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect for and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. We believe British values are those values expected of anyone living in Britain, regardless of their nationality, culture or religious belief.
We place great emphasis on building positive relationships in school, amongst the students themselves and between staff and students. We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values but that they are embedded into school life.
The Kassia Academy promotes British values through our broad and balanced curriculum. We are committed to serving our community and recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom. We also understand the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
At Kassia, we promote and reinforce five key British values. These are promoted in a variety of ways in and out of the classroom.
Rule of Law
Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
We believe and actively support the view that all students should be protected from radicalisation and extremism. Our approach to this is in line with the Government’s CONTEST (the counter terrorist strategy) and PREVENT (stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism) strategies. We support and adhere to the latest guidance from the Department for Education which requires school o actively promote fundamental British Values and to ensure that students are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.
We are committed to educating students with regard to their engagement with and acceptance of
the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We aim to support our students in developing and demonstrating skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
