At St Mary's the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law,                                                                                                                                                         
individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and
beliefs run through everything that we do

Through our  provision of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education, we:

• enable our pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;
• enable our pupils to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and
criminal law of England;
• encourage our pupils  to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and
to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and
working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
• enable our pupils to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public
institutions and services in England;
• further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling
our pupils  to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures;
• encourage respect for other people; and
• encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic
processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in


We develop:

• an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the
democratic process;
• an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is
essential for their wellbeing and safety;                                                                                                                                                                                                       

• an understanding that there is a separation of power between the executive and
the judiciary, and that while some public bodies such as the police and the army
can be held to account through Parliament, others such as the courts maintain
• an understanding that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is
protected in law;
• an acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or
having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of
prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour; and
• an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination.
