British Values in the Curriculum

At Wayland Academy we are dedicated to promoting values that ensure our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility.

We prepare the students for life in Modern Britain because values such as individual liberty, democracy, the law, mutual respect and tolerance are embedded within the curriculum and the Academy ethos. In addition, these values are promoted through our welfare themes which are delivered in tutor time and in the wide range of opportunities that are open to our students. Our Academy embodies a democratic model in the way we work, the way we are structured and our general ethos and culture in the Academy. Our rules and regulations are there for the benefit of everyone, and our Academy takes a holistic approach to teaching British Values rather than concentrating on individual subjects.

Our core values of Innovate, Discover, Explore and Activate harness all aspects of British Values and allow a platform for delivery.

Within the promotion of fundamental British values and the combination of welfare themes, assemblies, the Life curriculum, student voice and awareness weeks, students at Wayland Academy experience SMSC development.
