Promoting British Values
The DfE have recently reinforced the need to "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to
promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and
tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014.
We have used this image with the children to help them remember the British Values.
Can you name all five?
British Values are taught through the school curriculum in a number of ways.
