Respect

At Bury College we emphasise the importance of respecting staff, students and visitors to the college and respecting their property and the facilities of the college, which exist for the benefit of all. You are asked to help us create an environment where everyone feels safe and valued and where you can work successfully to achieve your full potential.

 

Prevent

The college is committed to the Government’s National Strategy for ‘Prevent’ which safeguards you from extremism and radicalisation. To this end we promote the fundamental British Values of Rule of Law, democracy, individual liberty, tolerance and mutual respect.

 

Fundamental British Values

Bury College is proud to promote the fundamental British Values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith

These values underpin the college community and are lived out through our ethos. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle to introduce, discuss and further understand these concepts to ensure that students are equipped for life in modern Britain.

The views of students are listened to, valued and actioned enabling them to experience the importance of democracy. This is achieved through student surveys, learner voice forums and student representation on key groups including the governing board.

 

Online safety

At Bury College, we embrace the use of different technologies to enhance learning and to encourage our students to be digitally safe and responsible.
