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.


Parent Pamphlet on British Values January 2016


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.


Examples are:

  • Debates about the advantages and disadvantages of democracy
    Lesson and assemblies about how Democracy works in Britain
    Giving pupil a voice e.g School Parliament
    Mock elections for school Parliament and General Elections
    Teaching about a range of faiths in a positive and sensitive manner
    Respecting and promoting remembrance day for WW1 and WW2
    Teaching British History
    Supporting and donating to charities such as food banks and children in need
    Celebrating the Royal Family
    Teaching about Key People in our History

We are in the process of re-evaluating our aims and values in consultation with all stakeholders please feel free to share with us what you think they should look like.
