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

What’s going on this week?


New figures revealed on the 7th April by the Department of Transport show that only a very small
proportion of people in the UK are still travelling during the lockdown period that the government
have imposed during the COVID-19 outbreak. Visits to shops, museums and cafes in the UK have
fallen by 85% since the coronavirus outbreak, according to data shared by Google. The government
has supported Google in using data in this way.
Things to talk about at home…
Have you used technology to communicate with friends or family outside of your home? If so,
do you think you will continue to use this after the lockdown period has ended?
What changes have your family made to reduce the amount you leave your home? Do you
think you will continue with any when the restrictions are lifted?

There's good news coming from Africa. After huge conservation efforts, the number of critically endangered black rhinoceroses is slowly increasing, according to the latest figures released by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The numbers show that the population has grown at a rate of 2.5% per year over the past six years. The species is still in danger; susceptible
to poaching and a changing habitat due to the changing climate. Yet, the population growth provides hope that efforts put into saving the species are paying off.
Things to talk about at home…
Can you talk about your favourite wild animals? What is it you like about them?
Do you think leaders and people in charge of different countries need to do more to help
endangered animals, or do you think charities and people need to do more?

Many countries across the world have been asked to remain at home during the COVID-19 outbreak. Thousands of Italians and British people all over the country clapped from their windows & doorways as healthcare workers and key-workers went to work, raising spirits during lockdown.

Things to talk about at home...

  • Think about things that make you happy. Can you make a list?
  • Can you think of a time you cheered someone else up, or a time someone cheered you up when you needed it. How did they do it?
  • Why do you think people chose to take part in the celebration from their doorways? How do you think it made the healthcare workers feel on their way work?
