Promoting British Values
At Huckleberry Therapeutic School, our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and ensure that we provide an environment which prepares our students to be confident, happy citizens.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
The Department for Education states that: "Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."
In accordance with The Department for Education, we aim to actively promote British values to ensure our young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.
We place great emphasis on building positive relationships in school, amongst the students themselves and between staff and students.
We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values, but that they must be embedded into school life. Throughout the school, and embedded within our curriculum, students are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and to understand that while different people may hold different views about what is 'right' and 'wrong', all people living in England are subject to its law.
We work hard to promote and embody positive values throughout the the school, for example throughout policy, our broad and balanced curriculum offer, and through our therapeutic focus which ensures and enables social, moral, cultural and spiritual development.
