British Values Statement



The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:


  • Respect for democracy and support or participation in the democratic process

  • Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England

  • Support for equality of opportunity for all

  • Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law

  • Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs

All curriculum areas help to further understand these concepts, in particular, RE, PSHE and Assemblies. These provide opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.
