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

Last academic year we celebrated key British values during our school assemblies. We discussed and shared our ideas and views on values such as:

  • Tolerance
  • Respect
  • Friendship
  • Resilience


We also spent time learning our National Anthem and discussing what the lyrics represent.


Look out to see how we develop this into the 2018-2019 academic year!
