Promoting British Values

Meridian High School is committed to serving our community.  We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  We also understand the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

As a school we follow 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. Meridian High School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that we promote and reinforces British Values to all its students.

The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools.  The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.

The five British Values are:

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

We use strategies within the National curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for our students. The examples that follow show some of the many ways Meridian High School seeks to embed British values.

Democracy

The principle of democracy is consistently being reinforced at Meridian High School, with democracy processes being used for important decisions within the school community, for instance, elections being held annually for the student council positions. The principle of democracy is also explored in the History and Ethics as well as in form time, assemblies and Afternoon Tea and Debates with senior leaders and groups of students. 

The rule of law

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced at Meridian High School.

Students are taught the rules and expectations of the school which are highlighted by the student code of conduct and student expectations.  Students are taught the value and the reasons behind laws that govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.  Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service reinforce this message.

Individual liberty

At Meridian High School, students are actively encouraged to make independent choices, with the knowledge that they are in a safe, secure and supportive environment. Staff at Meridian High School educate and provide boundaries for students to make informed choices, through a safe environment and an empowering education. 

Students are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised on how to exercise these safely, for example through e-safety training and Form Time work.

Meridian High School has a robust anti-bullying culture and has in place a comprehensive Amazing Behaviour Policy and a clear anti bulling policy.

Mutual Respect

Respect and honour is a strong part of our Meridian High School and is part of its vision and ethos statement.  Students learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others.  All members of the school community treat each other with respect and this is reiterated through our teaching and learning environments. 

Mutual respect is embraced throughout the curriculum by providing the opportunity for students to express their views in a safe environment.

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

This is achieved though equipping students with the ability to understand their place in a culturally diverse society and by providing the opportunities to experience such diversity within the school community. Our students are actively encouraged to share their faith and beliefs within the school and celebrate festivities throughout the calendar year.  Ethics provides a broad and balanced education on a range of faiths, religions and cultures. 

Meridian High School strives endlessly to ensure that its students leave with the strongest foundation of values upon which to build a successful life and a successful contribution to our Society.
