Life skills and Values

The Dogsthorpe Academy LIFE SKILLS and BRITISH VALUES

The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 ‘Prevent’ Strategy.

The five British Values are:

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

At the Dogsthorpe Academy we share the same values and develop these through our life skills in every day academy life. They are introduced through our PSHE sessions, our curriculum, our whole school events and experiences and our assembly themes. They are also recognised and celebrated in our weekly well done assembly.
