These core values link directly to our whole school vision:

SHINE high and fly



             Promoting British Values at Bridge 


As part of our vision, we understand that character education is every bit as crucial to our pupils’ development as academic success. Our SHINE values  are designed to  promote and complement the five fundamental British values identified by the Department for Education:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

We teach our pupils the importance of SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) development so that our pupils are citizens who  respect,  tolerate and celebrate similarities and differences irrespective of their faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class or any other perceived differences. Through our curriculum, we embrace all that life in modern Britain has to offer.



We encourage all children to have respect, look after their own personal property and that of others. All establishments owned by Leicester City Council have the following disclaimer:


Leicester City Council disclaims all liability for any loss of or damage to any personal property howsoever caused on the premises, including the loss or damage to property caused by the negligence of the City Council, its servant or agents except where such disclaimer is contrary to the provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.
