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



Something which is clearly not part of any British or European value is extremism. Extremism is not a new topic in education, but schools have a relatively new statutory duty to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty (Section 26, Counter- Terrorism and Security Act 2015).   The Prevent Duty is clear that extremism of all kinds should be tackled.


Please find some information below to support parents in discussions about extremism and preventing radicalisation.
