British Values

Promoting British Values

The DfE highlighted the need to ‘create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs’.

These principles are promoted at Beaufort Primary School by giving our pupils a sense of belonging both in school, the wider community and the country in which they live.  We believe that our pupils should acquire knowledge of both the past and the present which informs them of how British values have been shaped.  We ensure our pupils gain a sense of enjoyment and curiosity in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.

We teach and promote the concept of democracy through:

  • electing a School Council and following democratic processes in running the Council
  • consulting pupils, parents/carers through questionnaires and focus groups
  • our History curriculum

We teach and promote the rule of law through:

  • our School Behaviour Policy
  • school assemblies and PSHE themes

We teach and promote the concept individual liberty through:

  • pupil responsibilities of ‘Special Person’, monitors and buddy readers
  • providing a wide range of enrichment activities

We teach and promote mutual respect through:

  • our school motto of ‘Together We Succeed’
  • whole school theme weeks
  • charity raising events

We teach and promote tolerance of different faiths and cultures through:

  • school assemblies
  • our school curriculum, PSHE and RE lessons including visits and visitors
