With Christ, we grow in faith and understanding.


British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Children are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

British Values

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Respect of those of different Faiths and Beliefs 

At St Teresa’s we actively promote gospel values, virtues and ethics that shape our children’s character and moral perspective, through the teachings of the Church. We follow the example of the Good Samaritan where we are called to love and care for our neighbour. We ensure that through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching we promote respect and tolerance for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles.

 Our Objectives:

  • To ensure that all pupils develop an understanding of the values which underpin life in modern day Britain.

  • To teach all pupils to have mutual respect and tolerance for and an understanding of, the various faiths and beliefs represented in Britain today.

  • To ensure that all pupils learn to uphold the rule of the law and support justice and equality.

  • To help all pupils understand and value the rich diversity that other citizens from different cultures, religions and backgrounds bring to our national society.

  • To value people’s differences and respect them.

  • To develop pupils’ awareness and tolerance of communities different to their own.

  • To value democracy and to stand up for right against wrong.

  •  To follow Jesus' teaching, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."  John 13:34
