Cleadon Church of England Academy

Flourishing together as one

Our British Values



Here at Cleadon Church of England Academy we ensure that principles are promoted which encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance towards all faiths and beliefs.



The voices of our children can be heard through our elected school council.

Our annual questionnaires enable all staff, pupils and parents to put forward their opinions.

We use yearly elections to appoint House representatives.

Visits from our local MP and visits to the Town Hall provide an insight into local government.


Respect and Tolerance

Through RE we explore the stories and celebrations of a variety of faiths and cultures.

During PHSE we learn how our behaviors effect our own lives and the lives of others.

We take visits to the places of worship that are important to the faiths of others.

We actively challenge pupils, parents or staff who express views opposing our British Values.


 Rule of Law

All children are actively encouraged to keep the school rules.

We regularly have visits from law enforcement officers and the fire service to reinforce high expectations of behavior both in school and in the community.

We understand the high expectations of our school and accept the consequences for misguided choices.

We are proud of our school and community and endeavour to live within the expected rules of both.


Individual Liberty

Our children are actively encouraged to make their own choices within a safe and supportive environment.

Through E-Safety lessons we explore our rights and personal freedoms when using technology.

All children are encouraged to develop independence in their learning.

Challenge and choice within a safe managed environment are key elements in all our lessons.
