Our School Values

Our School Values

We have asked our stakeholders including children, parents and carers and staff about the things that are the most important to us at Dogsthorpe Academy. We agreed that our core values are Respect, Honesty and Resilience. These values permeate through all of our work. 

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 school values and develop these through our 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 whole school assembly.
