The Pastures is a school with high standards for all which prides itself on its inclusive practice and promotes British values at all times. We see basic British values as the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. We expect all members of The Pastures to treat others with respect and tolerance regardless of their background, faith or culture. We would like our children to leave us with a good understanding of respect and with a good grounding in what it means to live in modern Britain. Our curriculum provides opportunity to learn about important aspects of British culture, to understand the value of democracy and that the right to hold different faiths and beliefs is enshrined in law.
