British Values Statement and Our Aims

British Values Statement

Guildford County School is committed to serving its community.  We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom.  We also understand the vital role that we play in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

Guildford County School follows equal opportunities guidance which seeks to guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.  It is also crucial that Guildford County School prepares its students for adult life, beyond the formal examined curriculum, preparing them for the diverse and dynamic community in which they will live and work.  An understanding of British values is a critical part of this education.
