British Values

 The DFE have recently reinforced the need for schools to encourage pupils to respect British values of:
  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
and Ofsted reflect this in their expectations that schools must "promote preparation for, and an appreciation of life in modern Britain".
Exploring religious and different social beliefs, in a peaceful and non-violent way and learning how to show respect for those with different ideas, cultures and traditions, is a valuable part of growing up and something we encourage.  We endeavour to protect children from extremist and violent views that are contrary to these aims.
