British Values

A school whose ethos is based on gospel values of mercy, love, joy and respect is a school which by its nature, upholds British Values.

The Joy of the Gospel - Pope Francis


"The Church must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel."

Building Bridges - Promoting values through Belief, Faith and Culture 

                                                        by Jonathan Marshall MBE


Adviser to Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity and Plymouth Sacre July 2015

In February 2015, with a background of ongoing conflict, tragedy around the world and the threat of growing, violent extremism in Britain, His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, gave an interview... in which he advised:

​"I think the secret is we have to work harder to build bridges, despite the setbacks and despite the discouragement ... try to build bridges and show justice and kindness to people."


This is a major challenge for us all today. Whether in school or church; mosque or synagogue; temple or community group; how can we build bridges? How can I be a bridge? A bridge which conveys and communicates those all important values of respect, understanding and compassion for all.
