British Values

What are British Values?

British Values are described as the following

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect and tolerance

At our school we address this through our policy development, school ethos and rules, curriculum delivery, pastoral support, safeguarding and finding out about our community, our country and our world.  

 

To do this our children will develop;

  • An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process

  • An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law

  • An acceptance that people having different faiths and beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of discriminatory behaviour

  • An understanding of the importance or identifying and combating discrimination

The mission statement and aims of the school clearly reflect these values, and the whole school strives to uphold them.
