British Values at Priory Infant School

The government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and the Prime Minister last year reiterated the “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 Priory Infant School these values are carefully addressed in our curriculum and are woven into the ethos of our school.  We have a developmental approach that enables children to develop their understanding of these values throughout their time at our school in order that they become responsible citizens.

This starts with the Golden Rules in Year R and develops through the PSHE (personal, social and health education) curriculum in Year 1 and 2, our “Super learning Powers”,  as well as in assembly themes, school visits and visitors that give the children “real life” experiences and by becoming playtime and lunchtime helpers and joining the School Council.


Please look at the powerpoint presentation which  shows the exact wording we use with children when describing the British Values and some of the activities we do in class to help them understand what each of the British Values are.
