An Inclusive Ethos

In Chobham Academy students are made aware of the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. Our ethos reflects these values. We place emphasis on building positive relationships in school between students and between staff and students. We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values but that they are embedded into school life. We strive to support our students to develop into confident, happy, successful young adults who have an empathy and understanding of those less fortunate than themselves. The information below reflects how Chobham Academy works via promoting British values to achieve a balanced social, moral, spiritual and cultural curriculum.  

Students are encouraged to give their views and respect others via the Chobham pillars of Excellence, Respect, Innovation, Collaboration, Trust and Integrity. These are embedded in a number of ways: Student Parliament, weekly PSHE tutorials, assemblies as well as our broad and balanced curriculum, Safeguarding procedures (including the monitoring of the internet, identifying any concerns or patterns of usage) and Enrichment. Mutual respect and tolerance is promoted to include: anti bullying, disability, race/ethnic identity, religion/belief, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, sex (gender), age, marriage/civil partnership, being pregnant or having a child   - and raising awareness of hate crimes related to these characteristics (Equality Act 2010). Students are led to understand these characteristics are protected by law and are part of British Values (from 2011 Prevent Strategy) ,not just taught but embedded in school ethos/life and also includes: individual liberty, the rule of law, democracy, tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs, mutual respect and awareness and tolerance of communities which are different to their own – thereby preparing them  for life in modern Britain where they will feel confident to support each other and to and stand up to discrimination and challenge extremist attitudes. This awareness underpins the academic curriculum and is taught in every subject in a variety of traditional and innovative ways.

Staff are trained through CPD to be aware of/monitor changes in behaviour which may indicate a change in beliefs and this is reinforced through a strong pastoral system. They are the positive examples for modelling behaviour and setting standards of attitudes and behaviour in school which promotes equality for all and inclusive teaching – whilst celebrating diversity. These attitudes are reinforced via our 6th form students and through the election of MPs in every tutor group, in every Year, who form the student parliament and embed within the school an ethos of mutual respect through positive relationships.

Students are proactive in celebrating British Values through their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. They support others in an enthusiastic and rigorous fashion which includes – but is in no means exhaustive -  the Shoe Box Appeal, Food Bank Appeal,  Children in Need, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Save The Children, Cancer Support, Charity Week, Rugby World Cup. Students also act as volunteers both in school and in the wider community, as well as participating in whole school celebrations of many religious and cultural festivities such as Chinese New Year, Diwali, Eid, Christmas, World Book Day and Shakespeare Day! These provide opportunities to explore different religions and to understand people of other faiths and cultures by challenging stereotypes.
