British Values at Merstham Park

Our vision for promoting British Values

At MPS we recognise not only the importance of allowing students to flourish academically but we also embrace our wider responsibility to prepare our students to play a meaningful role within society beyond school-life. 

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and considered them to be democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. At MPS these values will be reinforced in a pervasive manner and permeate the school community.

The examples that follow are an indication of some of the many ways we will seek to embed British values at MPS and should be seen as an indication of our approach rather than an exhaustive list.

Our values support all children, staff, SSB members and community to develop effective relationships throughout the school, and provide the basis for our behaviour policy and PSHE curriculum. We use the values to ensure everyone in school benefits from high quality SMSC development.

Merstham Park Values

  • Collaboration and Responsibility - ‘we all work together and play our part’

  • Respect and Openness - ‘we can discuss our difference’

  • Well-being and Kindness - ‘we care about each other’

  • Excellence - ‘we support growth in each other to achieve beyond our expectations’

Promoting Democracy at Merstham Park

Democracy is evident throughout our school. Students have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our School Council and student questionnaires, the election of House Captains and class representatives. Our Positive Behaviour Policy sets out what is expected of all students in terms of respecting and valuing difference. We encourage a respect for democracy by modelling the voting process whenever appropriate, such as elections for House Captains and class representative for School Council.

Promoting the Rule of Law at Merstham Park

The importance of Laws/rules, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced, particularly during school and class assemblies, SMSC and topic work. Students are taught the value and reasons behind laws; that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and consequences when laws/rules are broken.

Promoting Individual Liberty at Merstham Park

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. Students are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and SMSC lessons. Whether it be through choice of challenge, how they record work, selection of lunches or participation in extra-curricular clubs - students are given the freedom to make choices.

Promoting Mutual Respect at Merstham Park

Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around Core Values such as ‘Respect’, and students will be a part of discussions and assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown.

Tolerance of and respect for those of all faiths , no faith, different culture and lifestyles

This is achieved through enhancing students understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based issues have been followed and supported by learning in RE and SMSC. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning.
