Values & Ethos
Regency is committed to playing a full and active role in its local community. We recognise the changing multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and follow the policies outlined by our governing body which promote equal opportunities and ensure there is no discrimination against any individuals or groups irrespective of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or social status. Regency endorses the teaching of key British Values as set out by the government; that is democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. This is delivered through a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities in which British Values are shared and explored.
Examples of these activities include:
- Whole school assemblies and presentations, charity events and collaborative activities such as World Sports Day
- Developing core skills (literacy, numeracy, ICT) through curricular activities to enable students to access information, research and discuss ideas and gain an understanding of how to live and take part in modern British society
- Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Activities (SMSC) which include both curricular coverage particularly in for example, RE, Humanities, PSHE / Citizenship and PE and also extra-curricular activities such as School Council, clubs, performances, competitions, visits and residential trips.
At Regency we provide a caring, supportive and challenging environment that is designed to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum and to foster the independence of our students. We recognise and develop the academic, physical, social and emotional needs of our students through an integrated team approach that involves educational, medical and therapy staff. The contribution of all members of our community is valued and respected and we actively work to create an atmosphere in school, where families feel welcomed and supported and where parents and carers are valued as an important part of the team.
