British Values

British Values at Roseberry Primary School

The teaching of value has once again become prevalent in the curriculum. David Cameron said they included “a belief in freedom, tolerance of others, accepting personal and social responsibility, respecting and upholding the rule of law.”

What do we mean by British values?

Ofsted Department for Education
Democracy Respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process
The rule of law Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England. Support for equality of all
Individual liberty Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs

At Roseberry, we believe that our vision and our mission statement support the development of these values. We believe that our school ethos is based on respect for all and promotes preparation for the future:

Respect for all; promoting excellence; successful confident individuals

As a school, we also value and celebrate the rich heritage of Britain. Our curriculum topics ensure that pupils have the opportunity to learn about our local community as well as other areas in Britain.

We celebrate key events in the country; most recently the Rugby World Cup and Remembrance Day. Over recent years, we have also celebrated the births of the Royal Prince and Princess, The Para Olympics and The World Cup.

Assemblies uphold the traditional values of empathy, respect and tolerance. These are also taught through PSHE/Circle time and RE lessons and on an informal basis throughout the school day.
