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 

At Old Clee Primary Academy, we do all we can to help our pupils develop into self-assured, confident, happy and positive young people. By adopting British values within our core teaching principles, we ensure that our pupils promote a positive approach to both their own lives and the lives of others.

We enable our pupils to:

  • Develop their self- confidence and self- knowledge by encouraging them to articulate their feelings and opinions.
  • Distinguish right from wrong, both at a school-level and by establishing respect for the civil and criminal law of England.
  • Accept responsibility for their behaviour and show initiative in their response to a range of scenarios.
  • Understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the local community of the school.
  • Develop a mature understanding of the importance of public services and institutions in England, within a civilised society.
  • Respect the fundamental British values of democracy by showing mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
  • Be exposed to a balanced presentation of political views while refraining from promoting one specific viewpoint.
