British Values

Since September 2014, the DfE has 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.’

Values are things which are important to us and central to our lives both as
individuals and collectively. They are deeply held principles that guide our
thinking, choices and behaviours and influence how we manage our emotions
British Values are:
Ofsted VersionDfE Version
Democracy Respect for democracy and support for
participation in the democratic process
The Rule of Law
Respect for the basis on which the law is
made and applies in England

Support for equality and opportunity for all
Individual Liberty Support and respect for the liberties of all
within the law
Mutual respect and tolerance of those
with different faiths and beliefs
Respect for and tolerance of different faiths
and religious and other beliefs
We live these values through our school values Respect for Self, Others and our World.
We teach the skills and develop qualities needed through our PSHE SCARF curriculum.

We have linked these values to our school values and social cogs
in our PE curriculum.
Our Harmony Curriculum builds on British values to develop global values through the sustainable
development goals and connecting our learning to what we need for a sustainable and happy future.
