British Values

  • Tolerance
  • Mutual respect
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Democracy

Value statements from DfE guidance on promoting FBV in schools:

  • Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
  • Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
  • Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
  • Further tolerance and harmony between cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures
  • Encourage respect for other people
  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which law is made and applied in England

As a school we:

  • Use assemblies and collective worship sessions to address how British values are relevant to all pupils
  • Take a holistic approach and develop a strong school ethos which promotes British values (P4C)
  • As subject leaders identify opportunities in the curriculum where these values can be demonstrated
