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:
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
At Clayton St John CE Primary School we have a focus on Christian values, all of which link to the British values. We value the different backgrounds and faiths of all our pupils and families and we undertake a variety of activities in school to celebrate these. The five British Values are The Rule of Law, Democracy, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.
British Values are promoted in all aspects of school life, however they are taught and linked to in weekly RE and PSHE lessons.
How our Christian Values link with British Values
Our Christian Values underpin the ethos of our school, and we believe that they are fully interwoven with British Values. The table below shows how we have aligned both sets of values in order to embed them into school life and the curriculum.
Rule of Law
Tolerance of those with different faiths
