British Values

‘You have worked effectively to develop the life experiences and aspirations of the pupils in your care. Pupils not only learn about the values of British citizenship, they learn about the values of European and global citizenship. For example, pupils in key stage 1 have benefited from a twinning project with a school in London and another in the Republic of Ireland. Pupils have engaged in online calls with the other schools, letter writing and a collaborative arts project. They learn about life in different places. In key stage 2, pupils spoke with enthusiasm about a joint project with a school in the Philippines. They engage in regular correspondence and learn what life is like for a child to grow up in another country. Teachers celebrate pupils’ work well in colourful displays around the school. As a result of the broad and exciting curriculum on offer, pupils have a sound grasp of equality and differences. Pupils know that each person should be treated with mutual respect.’ (Ofsted 2019)

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
