De Lucy Primary School is committed to serving its community and surrounding areas.
It recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and every changing nature of the United Kingdom, and therefore those it serves.
It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
De Lucy, as a 'Community school', accepts admission (via Royal Borough of Greenwich) from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or none. It follows the policies outlined by its governing body regarding equal opportunities, which guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. It seeks to serve all.
The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that the key 'British Values' are taught in all UK schools.
The Government set out its definition of British Values in the 'Prevention Strategy' - values of:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
