British Values

The teaching of British Values is an integral part of our ethos. All members of our community are respected, valued and given opportunities to express themselves.   

There are 4 key threads that we promote to ensure the children have a variety of experiences and opportunities which will prepare them for future life in Modern Britain, these are:-

  • Democracy: children having views, valuing each other, talking about feelings, turn taking, sharing, working together and developing enquiring minds
  • Rule of law: managing feelings and behaviour, consequences, learning right from wrong, rules
  • Individual liberty:  developing confidence, self-worth, self-esteem, taking risks, talking about differences 
  • Mutual respect and tolerance:  learning about how you want to be treated, similarities/differences (families, faiths, community, culture).
