British Values at QE

The College is committed to actively promoting a set of values which underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Britain, valuing our community and celebrating the diversity of the UK. By ensuring that our students understand and embrace these values, we recognise that we are supporting their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and contributing to the Prevent Duty.

British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law

  • Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs

We regard these values as fundamental, though not exhaustive, and seek to embed them in all aspects of college life including the following:

  • college policies
  • staff development

• Student views surveys
