British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values


We promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. These are fostered and nurtured as part of our rich curriculum, our spiritual, moral, social and cultural provision as well as through the Christian ethos of the school and our vision and values. This provides a firm foundation to enable all to thrive as unique individuals and to prepare them to be successful global citizens.



We promote a culture of encouraging Pupil Voice where children are listened to and have opportunities to air their opinions and ideas which contributes to decision making processes within school. Through the curriculum, children learn about government and the concept of democracy. For example-


  • School Council members are democratically voted in at the start of the year.
  • Our Spiritual Group are helping re-design God's Secret Garden where mindfulness reflection takes place within our school.
  • Our 'Crew Captains' are voted by the children in each Crew Group and elect a charity for each Crew Group for the year. 



The importance of laws and rules are consistently reinforced as part of school life. This can be rules that govern the country, our school or in class. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws in that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. For example- 


  • Visits from the authorities such as the police, fire service etc, are regular activities within our school calendar to help reinforce messages.
  • Class contracts are created in every class at the start of each year.
  • Through our curriculum, behaviour policy and use of Jigsaw 
  • Embedded through our school values of responsibility and respect. 



Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make informed choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. The school celebrates each child's individual strengths and passions and they are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms in a responsible manner. For example - 


  • Through our This is Me work and display
  • Celebration Worship
  • Embedded in our school values of courage and hope
  • Through our curriculum -anti bullying, E Safety, big questions in RE lessons



Mutual respect is at the heart of our values and children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. Children learn about different faiths and beliefs to deepen their understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society. For example - 


  • Through our belief in Crew and everyone working together to achieve more than we ever thought possible. 
  • Embedded in our school values of respect, responsibility and compassion. 
  • Visits from people from other cultures and trips to places such as a local mosque.
