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 Holy Trinity, we develop and promote British Values through our value led school ethos, prioritising the wellbeing and personal development of our children, but also by threading these core values through our wider curriculum, particularly in Geography, History, RE and RSHE.

This enables our children to become well rounded, respectful members of the society, who treat others with respect, and leave our school fully prepared for life in modern Britain, regardless of background.

Pupils are encouraged to be respectful of all faiths, cultures and race, whilst being tolerant of other people’s views.  They understand that people may hold different views about what is right and wrong, but ultimately all people living in Britain are subject to its law.

The key British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
