At Bardfield Academy, British values are modelled and promoted through our enriching curriculum and extra-curricular activities. We are committed to promoting these values and, in September 2015, the whole school community, created and voted on our new school ethos:

‘Striving to Achieve, Together we’ll Succeed!’

We actively create opportunities which expose the pupils to learn, explore and apply these British values of democracy, tolerance, individual liberty, mutual respect and the rule of law.


We have elected our class councillors and are busy listening to your ideas and concerns. Keep checking the You said: We did board to see what we are working on currently… plastic is our priority this term!

Mutual Respect:

As a school work together to respect our personal space and belongings.  We share resources and take time to listen to each other’s ideas. Remember, we want everyone to feel safe and happy at school – and together WE can all make that happen 🙂

Individual Liberty: 

We are rewarded for the good choices we make, we can move into the inspiration zone, get certificates and Dojo points.  We understand the rewards and also the consequences.

The Rule of Law:

Our School ethos is ‘striving to achieve, together we’ll succeed’.  We understand the need for rules and strive to achieve success by following them –  they prepare us for adult life and make us feel safe. We have developed our own class contracts; we know and have agreed the rules we must follow.
