British Values

Our Core Values

The government are asking all schools to actively promote the fundamental British values. British Values are:


Ofsted says:

The DFE says:


Respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process

The rule of law

Respect for the basis on which law is made and applies in England


Support for the equality of opportunity for all

Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law

Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious or other beliefs


  • Across our schools we actively promote these values through the work of our curriculum, our assemblies, our class assemblies, the teaching of PHSCE and the Religious Education curriculum
  • We challenge pupils, staff and parents who express opinions contrary to British values through our behaviour policies, codes of conduct and the governor agreed ethos which underpins our work.
  • Children are given a broad general knowledge of, and we promote respect for, public institutions and services.
  • We encourage the children to become involved in decision making and we ensure that children are listened to in school
  • We help our pupils to express their views by developing speaking and listening, debate and discussion through our curriculum
  • We show our children how perceived injustices can be peacefully challenged through our behaviour policy, our Rainbow of expectations , our conflict resolution and peer mediation work.
  • We teach our children school rules and help them to distinguish right from wrong
  • We help children develop an age appropriate understanding of living under the rule of law and how that protects individuals in our society.
  • We work closely with the police and other agencies to develop restorative justice and resolve conflicts
  • As an inclusive school, We actively support our pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self -esteem and self -confidence.
  • We promote and implement a strong anti-bullying culture
  • We help our pupils develop an awareness of their own and other cultures and ways of life
  • We challenge discriminatory or prejudicial behaviour
  • We have good links to a range of faith organisations and encourage visits and visitors
