Promotion of British Values

At CCGS we are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. We prepare our students for life in Modern Britain by developing an understanding of:

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

CCGS organises a programme of assemblies delivered by external speakers, staff and pupils in which aspects ofSMSC  (spiritual, moral, social and cultural), health and
wellbeing and wider relationships in the modern world are explored. Within the assembly themes and form time debates, aspects of British values are promoted.                                
E.g. 2016 -17 Assembly themes: Elie Wiesel- Writer and Holocaust survivor, National identity, The Prophet Muhammad, Asylum, Safer internet day and the role of volunteering in our society.
