British Values at Charford First School
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 - Britain is a democracy - this means that the people of Britain vote for the people who make the laws and decide how the country is run. If we didn't have a democracy, just one person might be able to make all the laws and would not be fair.
Rule of Law - In Britain we have a police force who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law - this means we are safe.
Individual Liberty - In Britain, as long as we do not break the law, we can live as we choose to and have our own opinions about things.
Mutual Respect - We might not always agree with other people, but we try to show respect for their thoughts and feelings. We can give respect to others and we can expect other people to show us respect.
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs - In Britain we accept that other people might have different beliefs than ours and they may believe in different religions.
