Our Values are British Values

The Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively, and to ensure they are taught in schools.

At Marshchapel Infant School, we are 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 it has in ensuring that groups of individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

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. Our school is dedicated to preparing children for their adult life beyond the formal curriculum and ensure that we promote and reinforce British values with all our pupils.
