British Values


Heartlands Academy is committed to promoting fundamental British values of the rule of law, democracy, individual liberty and mutual respect. It is not acceptable to discriminate based on colour, ethnicity, religion/belief, gender, gender-reassignment, sexual orientation and disability; to this end we aim to ensure these values are a part of our academy curriculum. We live in a multifaceted country whereby all its citizens are able to enjoy the freedom of choice. By promoting this through our academy we aim to ensure the personal development of our students.
