'Values’ is the umbrella term that we have given to the interrelated subjects, themes and topics covered in: Citizenship; Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education; Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development; the Prevent duty, British Values and Sex and Relationships education (RSE). It also includes the study of Religious Education at Key Stage 4. The requirements of each area have been analysed and broken down into a series of  Values strands and Employability skills.

We believe that it is vital for our students at Brighton Hill Community School to study ‘Values’ both as part of and alongside their core and specialism subjects in order to prepare them to be good citizens in our local community and wider society and lead healthy and fulfilling lives. As such, the Values strands and Employability skills are interwoven through and referenced in our subject schemes of learning, our tutor programme (including Values lessons) and our Deep Learning Days to ensure consistent coverage of these statutory topics.  

Through the delivery of Values through a spiral curriculum across students' five years with us, we ensure that our students develop the understanding of the world around them and the life skills that will enable them to grow into empowered, well-rounded individuals who are able to live safe, happy and fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society.
