School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you would like a paper copy or want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office, who will provide this free of charge.

British Values Statement

Penruddock School is committed to serving its community.  It recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  It also understands the vital role it has 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.

It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Penruddock School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.

The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools.  The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.

The five British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

The school uses a range of strategies within the National curriculum and through our broad range of extra-curricular and pupil leadership activity to secure such outcomes for students. 


Equality Statement


Governors are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all members of our school community. They review annually a wide range of data in order to identify any inequalities within the school. Any inequalities identified are addressed through actions on the School Development Plan.

We aim to:

  • Encourage the small percentage of children from all equality groups who do not engage in extra-curricular activity to become more involved in activities offered at lunchtimes.
  • Hold more regular school council and eco council elections to allow more children, from all equality groups to participate.
