Core British Values

The curriculum at Al Aqsa School actively promotes fundamental ‘British’ values. This includes the values of democracy, the rule of the law, individual liberty and mutual respect/ tolerance for others.

At Al Aqsa School each of these values are reinforced daily in the following ways:

Democracy- Students have a say in school life at the termly student forum meetings with the Principal.

Liberty- Students are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe environment and also understanding that they are accountable for those choices.

Respect and Tolerance- Mutual respect is an integral part of the culture at Al Aqsa School.

Law- Pupils understand the difference between right and wrong. They recognise that there are consequences for every choice that they make and apply this to their lives inside and outside of school by respecting English civil and criminal law.

Responsibility-We expect our students to be proactive in their learning, understanding that they are equally responsible for their learning as the teacher. Homework assignments are set for students to work independently and develops organisational skills.
