Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
Every school and academy has a duty to support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of its students, both through the timetabled curriculum and through all the other experiences and opportunities students have during their time at school.
This includes the responsibility to teach strong British values such as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.
Educating against hate
At Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich we are committed to protecting and educating our students from radicalisation and extremism. For example, we hold assemblies with our students talking to them about the war in Syria and its impact around the world, explaining extremism and helping students to understand the evil of organisations such as ISIS and how they can safeguard themselves against extremism. The government have recently created an Educate Against Hate website that offers advice to parents on protecting their children from radicalisation and extremism.
