British Values

British Values

Coppetts Wood is committed to serving its community and recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  As a ‘Community School’, we accept admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or no faith.  We follow the policies outlined by our governing body regarding equal opportunities, ensuring there is no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.  We seek to serve all.


The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all U.K. schools.  The government set out its definition of British values in the ‘Prevent Strategy’ - values of:


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


At Coppetts Wood, we reinforce these values though a wide range of activities.  See the links below for examples of when and where such British Values are shared.  These lists is not exhaustive, and represents only some of what we do.
