Modern British Values (BMV) & Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC)

Members of King’s Lynn Academy are encouraged to express their individuality, and at the same time, to respect the British values of acceptance and tolerance of others. Opportunities are built into the curriculum and extra-curricular programme, to develop an awareness of and to explore alternative views. Students are encouraged to explore and build their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, along with high standards of personal behaviour. We place a strong emphasis on developing positive and caring attitudes towards others as well as an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.

Staff at KLA model and promote high standards of behaviour, treating all people as unique and valuable individuals and showing respect for students and their families.  The school community is a place where students learn to differentiate between right and wrong, to show an understanding of the need for rules and the need to abide by rules for the good of everyone. Our Behaviour Policy, Code of Conduct (KLA 6), and just about all our policies and procedures reflect, reiterate, promote and reward positive behaviour and provide opportunities to celebrate pupils' work and achievements.
