British Values

British Values Statement

George Salter Academy prides itself on being “One World in One School”. Driven by our ethos of “love, respect and care”, we are proud of our place at the centre of the ethnically diverse town of West Bromwich. We recognise and embrace the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of our town and nation.

At George’s we believe that we have a vital role in ensuring that our young people are safeguarded against the threat of radicalisation.

Our Admissions and Equal Opportunities Policies seek to ensure that everyone in our Academy gains the education they are entitled to, guaranteeing that there is no discrimination against any one individual or group of people, whatever their background.

The Government has mandated all UK schools to promote and teach “British Values”. These Values are set out in the Government’s “Prevent Strategy” and are the belief in:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

We strongly believe that we have always openly advocated and promoted these values. Our teaching of the National Curriculum enables us to promote these British Values. Below are some examples of where we do so.
