Modern British Values
British values are taught across the curriculum in a range of subjects and part of our assembly programmes.
Students study units in Ethics lessons that explore a range of British values such as tolerance and respect. History lessons specifically focus on British values for a unit in year 9 and Geography explore migration and a range of case studies.
Student leadership is based upon British values and the ethos of the Academy and there are community projects every term such as litter picking, shoebox appeal collections and fundraising, that demonstrate how British values are part of Brinsworth Academy.
We are proud to hold the RIGA Award and the Accord Inclusivity Award for our work and commitment to achieving excellence and ensuring that Modern British values are embedded across our Academy.
At Brinsworth Academy we value our diverse community and the way in which we work together. ‘One Academy, One Community’ is embedded within our student leadership programme and our student leaders are all trained to deliver community cohesion sessions to our primary schools.
We are the proud winners of the SACRE Accord Inclusivity Award and the Rotherham International Global Award due to our community involvement. Brinsworth Academy was referred to as an Academy ’that other schools should follow’.
Our students have collected for charities on a consistent basis and we are currently collecting for the ‘Homeless at Christmas’ shoebox appeal in South Yorkshire.
Student leaders are involved in various community programmes such as litter picking in Tinsley and Brinsworth and producing hanging baskets for the community to enjoy in Brinsworth and Waverley.
