British Values

Emmanuel Junior Academy is committed to serving its community.  It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wanting to unduly, or illegally, influence them.  


It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Emmanuel Junior Academy is dedicated to preparing children for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British Values to all its pupils.


The Government set out its definition of British Values in the 'Prevent' Strategy document.


The five key British Values are:

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


Our school uses strategies within the national curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for children. Thematic work can provide appropriate, differentiated and challenging learning, is very effective as a means of delivering the curriculum and most importantly helps children to make cross-curricular links/connections, alongside developing these British Values.
