Promoting British Values at Roecroft Lower School
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.”
This is also set out in the DfE Teachers Standards that:
Teachers uphold public trust in the profession and maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour, within and outside school, by:
not undermining fundamental British Values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
- Teachers Standards 9d
The Government’s definition of British values is set out in the 2011 Prevent Strategy; in 2014, it became statutory to publish how these are promoted in each school.
At Roecroft Lower School, the Values sit alongside the aims of the school. We believe our school is a unique place to work and learn. It has an individual identity that combines traditional values with a modern, vibrant vision. Children lie at the heart of this successful school. Staff bring a breadth and depth of professional knowledge and encourage a learning culture with a strong ethos of inclusion.
