British Values : Adobe Acrobat file (227.7k)

 At St Joseph’s school we aim to instill the British values outlined by our Government in all our pupils, so that they all understand what the people of our society see as being important and what we feel is right and wrong.

At St Joseph’s, we actively promote a culture of mutual respect and tolerance, democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.  British values permeate throughout the school curriculum and support the development of the whole child.
