Academy Ethos and Values

Here at the Dukeries, ‘fundamental British values’, are at the heart of all we do.

We promote democracy and fairness through our school council; through providing students with the opportunity to speak, frankly and honestly within lessons, and through providing students a safe forum, within which, they can explore and discuss controversial topics.

We understand the importance of ‘the rule of law’ through ensuring that students understand the rights and responsibilities that they have in the world, but also the rights and responsibilities that they have to the world, making sure that our students are equipped with the skills and knowledge to become productive, global citizens. 

Moreover, we promote ‘individual liberty’ and a ‘mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith’ by providing students with the knowledge and understanding of those deemed ‘different’ to themselves, challenging prejudice and hatred, and teaching students to question things, in order that they, ‘seek to understand’, and thus contribute positively to their community, both in the locality of the school and the world beyond.
