The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values were reiterated by the Prime Minister in 2014.

“A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.”

“We want every school to promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.”

“This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.”

DfE 2014

Our school reflects British values in all that we do.  We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world. 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. 

 At St Ann’s Primary School these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways.

  • The beginnings of democracy are taught through historical research of the Ancient Greece civilisation.
  • Democracy is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and assemblies.

  • Through our school assemblies, circle time and PSHE children are taught how to earn trust and respect and are supported to develop a strong sense of morality; knowing right from wrong and doing the right thing even when it’s difficult.
  • The local community police officers / Fire fighters visit the school to talk to the children and explain about their role in society.

  • SEAL has specific units relating to individual liberty including ‘Good To Be Me !’
  • Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, including on-line.  This is done through computing lessons, assemblies and outside organisations such as the NSPCC, as well as through the PSHE curriculum.

  • The SEAL theme of ‘Getting on and Falling Out’ explores these issues well.
  • Mutual respect is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and assemblies.  A range of specific assemblies are delivered focusing on helping other pupils to understand specific special needs and charities.
  • Children are taught how to become a peer listener and activity leader to support others during playtimes.

  • This is supplemented by assemblies (Key Stage and whole school), which also mark and celebrate significant religious festivals such as Chinese New Year and Diwali.
  • Visits are made by local religious leaders and children have the opportunity to visit places of worship.
