British Values at ELAM

East London Arts and Music (ELAM) is a mixed, non-selective, 16-18 college.  Our aim at ELAM is to develop all of our trainees, so that they can lead success lives, access their preferred university or career and become the leaders of tomorrow within the creative sectors. As a college, we are dedicated to providing a range of opportunities which enable all of our trainees to flourish.

  • Part of our role in preparing trainees at ELAM for adult life in modern Britain is ensuring that we promote and reinforce British values to our trainees.

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these were reinforced in 2014. The British values are:

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

At ELAM trainees will encounter these values within the curriculum and through our provision for the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of all who attend the academy. We aim to ensure that the values permeate everyday college life and link with our core values of excellence, integrity, drive, innovation and collaboration.
