British Values

Promoting British Values


"Together in Christ, we learn to love and love to learn"


Our mission statement is at the heart of all we do at St. Joseph's.  We recognise that working together with Christ is so important to all aspects of school life.   The Gospel Values, that are so important within our school, have helped us to understand the importance of the five British values of: 


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




We aim to actively promote British values to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
