Promoting British Values at Sauncey Wood Primary School
At Sauncey Wood Primary School, we recognise not only the importance of allowing students to flourish academically, but we also embrace our wider role in preparing them for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum. Part of our role in that preparation, is ensuring that we promote and reinforce British values to our students.
The Government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. 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 Sauncey Wood, these values are reinforced in a pervasive manner and permeate the school community.
