British Values

In November 2014 the DfE produced guidance for schools on actively promoting British values as part of the requirement to provide for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of their pupils.

Holmwood School promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

At Holmwood, we:

  • Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Enable students to distinguish right for wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
  • Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
  • Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
  • Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures
  • Encourage respect for other people
  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.

The Hardship Fund has been created to help our most vulnerable people and families.

Everyone who is of working age and currently in receipt of council tax support will get up to a further £150 reduction in their council tax bill. In some cases this will mean they do not pay anything in 2020/21. Eligible residents will be re-billed in early April to reflect the additional support offered.

Middlesbrough Council is going further than that: we’re extending our crisis payment scheme for those who have been impacted by Coronavirus, and who are waiting for entitlement for universal credit.

Universal credit is still the main benefit system for those who are out of work. But we know waiting to be approved can cause financial need and we are stepping in to provide support to those who are waiting for payments.
