St Columba's is a Catholic school with Christ’s teachings of love, peace and justice at the heart of all we do.
The Government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values have been reiterated by the prime minister this year. The DfE has recently reinforced the need ‘to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values.’ These are:
> The rule of Law
> Individual Liberty
> Mutual Respect
> Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
