British Values

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 


Each week, a school assembly is based around 'Picture News'; this is a link into a topical conversation that is in the media at the time.  All of these talking points are linked in to one of the British Values, which means that the children can get to know about the British Values at a level and in a context that is appropriate to them.

How do we link this to Curriculum areas?
