British Values

Schools are required to teach British values as part of their responsibility for promoting the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of their pupils. In doing this they can also show that they are ‘actively promoting fundamental British Values.’ 


The British Values are defined as: 


• Democracy

• The rule of law

• Individual liberty

• Mutual respect

• Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs 


British Values are developed across the curriculum in all classes and through a variety of whole school activities:


• Positive relationships with adults in school and in the wider community

• Pupil voice contributing to decisions

• Collective Worship

• Display in classrooms, identifying how children have demonstrated their understanding of British values

• Behaviour policy

• Participation in community events
