British Values

As a school we promote British Values :


What does Democracy look like in our school:

We have a School Council with members from Reception, Year One and Year Two.

The Council meets regularly and in the meetings the children’s views and ideas are sought and they help make decisions and then feedback to their classes.

They also collect class views which they bring to their meetings and are involved in fund raising for the school. 


What does The Rule of Law look like in our school:

Children are taught from Nursery about the ‘Golden Rules’ of our school. Pupils are taught the value of and reasons behind our school ‘golden rules’, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when rules are broken.

We have a variety of rewards when children keep the Golden Rules including Golden Time, the opportunity to be Star of the week, and stickers. These show children the rules are valued and in keeping them they will be rewarded. 


What does Individual Liberty look like in our school:

Children are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.

Through our work we discuss different choices that the children can make and encourage them to make the right choices.

We look at E-safety and the importance of making safe choices when online.


What does Mutual Respect look like in our school:


Respect is one of our values. Everyone is valued and has a contribution to make at our school.

Children are taught that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others.

The children and staff work with other schools and with the local community which develops their respect for others. 


What does Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs look like in our school:

All different faiths and beliefs are explored and celebrated through assemblies, RE sessions and a variety of visitors into school.

The children are taught that people have different faiths and beliefs and that these should be accepted. Children within our school with different faiths are encouraged to share their practices and special celebrations


Each week we have British Values Assemblies which are based around a topical theme from the news. Here are some examples of our discussions:
