Promoting British Values


Promoting British Values at Glade Hill Primary & Nursery School


At Glade Hill Primary & Nursery School we actively 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.


Respect for others is embedded in our inclusive ethos - We are Golden and we SPARKLE.


Our curriculum reflects our philosophy and prepares our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life in Modern Britain.


We regularly focus on 'British Values' during our collective worship sessions; including whole-school, key stage and class sessions.


On a weekly basis each class also focuses on our 'Picture News' image of the week, which shares a current event from our world through an image and a question in a child-friendly accessible format. Each image is linked to a specific British Value and promotes oracy and discussion around the theme and linked value. For further information, please see our 'Picture News Scheme' page in 'News and Events' and example resources below.


More about British Values...


The UK Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British values’ are taught in all UK schools. It set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.


The five fundamental British values are:

• Democracy

• The rule of law

• Individual liberty

• Mutual respect

• Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs



At Glade Hill we are committed to promoting British Values to provide for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils. As part of this requirement, we actively promote fundamental British values as part of our ethos that we are all GOLDEN and we all SPARKLE.


We believe British Values are essentially the 'Shared Values of British Citizenship' and include values that are both shared with people from other countries and are essentially British.


We believe that Citizenship education is an important opportunity for imparting and developing British values and has a crucial role to play in helping to build active citizens.
