Christian Distinctiveness and British Values

Christian Distinctiveness and British Values

As a Church of England High School, our Christian ethos is central in all parts of school life. Our school has a “strong, inclusive ethos within which students feel valued, very safe and able to flourish and achieve” SIAMS Report 2013.

British Values, as defined by the government, are democracy,the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

All aspects of our provision are underpinned by the Christian values of accomplishment, humility and service and we believe that these school values are reinforced by the British values outlined by the government. Students at Hutton feel that the “welcoming Christian ethos enables them to explore and express faith openly” and that “the school teaches us to strive to do our best and serve the needs of others”.

Students are given many opportunities to serve others in the school. A number of forms raise money for local and national charities and each year the 6th form Charity Committee raises around £1000 for the charities which they support.

All Year 7 students take part in the Archbishop of York Young Leaders award. This award challenges the students to “be the change they want to see” by looking at a range of past and present people of faith and how that faith motivated them to make a difference in the world. Each Student must complete a community, school, and local project to achieve the award.  Past students have helped weed around the school, raise money for local charities through cake sales and helped in their local communities.

Through our ethos, policies, assemblies and activities we reflect Christian and British values and are responsible for challenging prejudiced or extreme opinions and behaviour.
