Promoting British Values

We believe that our  school  promotes the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.

This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.

At EGA we understand the importance of our students learning  how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process. This is achieved through teaching:

  • an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law.
  • an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and respected, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.
  • an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination.

In the last academic year, students have worked with:

  • The Money Charity(Year 7)
  • Diversity Role Models - promoting equality and challenging homophobia (Year 8)
  • Tender workshops / Chelsea’s choice- sexual exploitation and grooming (Year 9)
  • ChildNet - critical thinking online (Year 9)
  • The Haven Trust -domestic violence, consent and relationships (Year 11)
  • The Inspire Project - challenging extremism, online grooming  and critical thinking (Years 9, 10,11)
