British Values

The government has defined British values as democracy; individual liberty; the rule of law; mutual respect; tolerance of those with different faiths and belief


These fundamental values are at the core of our everyday school life, with our curriculum actively displaying them. We whole heartedly promote our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development through some examples below:




Pupil Voice on key areas of school life

Pupil Council

Mock Elections

All students are given the opportunity to access the curriculum


Individual liberty

Safe environment where choices and freedoms are encouraged

Freedom to determine their own learning

Introduced to a range of beliefs through Religious Studies lessons so pupils are able to make more informed choices for themselves

After school clubs are offered


Rule of Law

The involvement of our pupils in the creation of the school rules

Safeguarding policy

Visits from members of police

Mutual Respect


Mutual respect

Students love coming to school and learn to treat each other and staff with respect



Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs

A respectful attitude to those whose faith and beliefs may differ from each other

Religious Studies is taught to all students across KS3 & 4

The Cricket Green pupil council had the priviledge of taking part in the Merton Remembrance Service, and paying tribute to all those who fought in war and gave their lives for their country.

Cricket Green was one of thirteen schools attending, and were able to lay a wreath on behalf of our school.


"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn, at the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them."
