British Values

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

Context

The DfE have recently reinforced the need "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 sets out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister this year. At St Mary's CE (VA) Primary School, these values are reinforced regularly through our mission and ethos, the Christian values we promote, and the curriculum we deliver.
