British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values


In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.


The Key Values are:


  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs 

Mutual Respect:

Black Lives Matter


The resources below are designed for older pupils. The resources have been produced sensitively and portray the story of one American man and his experience. The questions are all good questions to consider. This is particularly timely as there are protests and demonstrations in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign around the UK, and in Birmingham.


When thinking about these ideas, it is worth also reminding children of the values of dignity and worth, and the value God puts on each person. Jesus, in his life, shows the love and compassion of God for each person, and Christians are called to follow him in this. The worth of each person is shown in the Gospels through his teaching, healing, feeding, sharing hospitality, befriending, and forgiving. Ensuring our children are educated in an environment where all God’s children are valued is of the highest priority. The basic principle of respect for the value of each person is learned every day, every hour, every minute, when it is how people behave towards one another.


How do we show that everyone matters in our school?

When we discover that not everyone is treated as if they matter, what do we do about it?
