Glastonbury Thorn School


British Values and our GTS Values

GTS Citizenship Values

The Glastonbury Thorn curriculum provides children with an introduction to the essential knowledge and skills that they need in order to be aspirational citizens. The curriculum provides our children with the opportunities to become engaged learners, promoting inspirational learning. The learning journeys our children follow allows them to explore endless possibilities, showing an appreciation of human creativity and achievement, both within the community and beyond.

A strong ethos promotes positive learning attitudes and through our Learning Muscles, children develop the confidence to achieve.

The well-being of our children is high and we understand that a happy child is a child ready to learn. Through the core values of Kindness, Honesty, Effort, Respect and Being Sensible we grow aspirational citizens of the future. Our aim is to not only prepare the children for their next stage of learning, but to also prepare them for life. Every child deserves to be the best they can be.

Promoting Fundamental British Values.


In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. 

Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.


The Key Values are:

•    democracy
•    rule of law
•    individual liberty
•    mutual respect
•    tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
