British Values

Keeping our children safe and ensuring schools prepare them for life in modern Britain could not be more important. At Forest View Primary School we aim through our curriculum to teach children about

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

We will aim to embed fundamental British values. Actively promoting also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values.

We will strive to:

i)                    enable pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;

ii)                  enable pupils to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law;

iii)                encourage pupils to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality in which the school is situated and to society more widely;

iv)                provide pupils with a broad general knowledge of public institutions and services in England;

v)                  assist pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures in a way that promotes tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions; and

vi)                encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

We want to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
