Promoting British Values
Promoting British Values at Ermington Primary
The Department for Education 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.” The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
At Ermington Primary these values are promoted and reinforced regularly in many ways some of which are outlined below, including through a programme of whole school assemblies. We also deliver the Jigsaw PSHE programme which promotes and teaches a range of British values through the range of puzzle pieces covered through the year.
