Promoting Fundamental British Values

 

The DfE have recently reinforced 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 mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

At Hook-with-Warsash we are committed to preparing children for life in modern Britain. We actively promote ‘British Values’ through our school values programme, our PSHE, Citizenship and RE curriculum, and we are continually striving to develop the children’s understanding of the wider world through a range of activities. Developing the children spiritually, morally, socially and culturally is of upmost importance to us as a school.  

The Department for Education defines British Values as:

Democracy
Rule of law
Individual liberty
Mutual respect
Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
