British Values

The Government has given clear guidance about the role of British values in education.  The school leadership team has written this document to help parents and carers to learn more about what the Government’s  guidance says and how it is reflected in our school.

In sharing its guidance about British values, the Government reminds us that:

  • All people living in England are subject to its law
  • The ethos and teaching in all schools should support the rule of English civil and criminal law
  • Pupils should be made aware of the difference between the law of the land and religious law

Over time, through learning at home and school, children become increasingly familiar with the values that underpin our society – most recently referred to in educational documentation as ‘British Values’.

The government’s documentation outlines four key areas which have been identified for focus when children are learning about British Values.

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

The diagram below shows how we promote British Values at Manland:
