British Values

What are fundamental British values?​

In 2014, the Department for Education told all schools to promote 'British values' and advised that this is done through SMSC.​

Ofsted also require schools to promote 'British values' at every level including through their SMSC development, the curriculum and school leadership.​

The fundamental British values are​

  • Democracy​

  • The rule of law​

  • Individual liberty​

  • Tolerance and respect​​

British values are taught in conjunction with our SPIRIT values. These values are explicitly delivered in Monday afternoon, whole school assemblies and implicitly in everything we do.
