SMSC and Fundamental British Values
At the Manor Academy we have a clear set of values set out in our ‘Achieve’ vision.
We believe that this message is clearly aligned with that of our fundamental British values and we endeavour to educate students on each of these values throughout their time at the Academy. We have two members of staff with responsibility for the development of fundamental British values in the Academy and this is delivered in a variety of ways; in assemblies, in dedicated PSHE lessons delivered by PSHE teachers and tutors on a Friday afternoon, across lessons and during drop down days. Additionally, British values are actively promoted through student voice and the democratically elected ‘Student Senate’. The school endorses the understanding that while people hold different views about what is right and wrong, they must regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.
We believe that the Academy should actively promote the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of all students. Through dedicated RE lessons, planned activities in the curriculum, during enrichment and in the community, all students will be given opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, positive behaviour, caring attitude towards other people, understanding of the social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures. The aim of this provision is to strengthen the Academy’s Achieve culture, thus supporting students to continue to succeed in life after Manor.
