Promoting British Values and Pupil Responsibility

Pupil responsibilities at Kenningtons prepare pupils for modern life in Britain and provide an introduction to the skills and values that they will need as an adult.  Both children and adults consider all roles and responsibilities important and the British Values are an integral part of the application process, carrying out the role and the development of the role.
