Promoting British Values

At Merry Hill Infant School and Nursery, we fully support the ethos of promoting British Values to prepare our pupils for every success in modern Britain.

We understand that the society we live in is diverse, and our curriculum and life at Merry Hill reflect this. Underpinning everything we do are the values and understanding of Democracy, Law, Liberty, Respect and Tolerance. The Equality Act 2010 protects all individuals from discrimination and it is the school’s duty to ensure that all individuals have equal access and opportunity to all that is on offer.

In our aim to promote British Values, we also continually aim to develop Social, Cultural, Moral and Spiritual values throughout day-to-day school life and beyond.  Funding, including that for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and disadvantaged pupils, is used to target inequalities to ensure equality for all.  A major strength of Merry Hill is the excellent care, guidance and support provided for all pupils, leading to the outstanding outcomes in their personal, social and emotional development.
