British Values at Bleak Hill
“We want every school to promote the basic British Values of democracy, the rule of
law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths
and beliefs.” DfE
At Bleak Hill, we have a strong school ethos (Bleak Hill Values) that actively encourages and promotes British Values. Our curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities for our children to engage with and experience British Values.
A key part of our plan is to ensure our children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect, in preparation for life in modern Britain.
The British Values are:
Britain is a democracy - this means that the people in Britain vote for the people who make the laws and decide how the country is run.
- Rule of Law
In Britain we have a police force and court system who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law. They have the power to punish those who do so, keeping us safe.
- Individual Liberty
We are free to live as we choose and to have our own opinions as long as this does not take away someone else's freedoms or break rules or laws.
- Mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs
We accept and respect that other people might have different beliefs to ours. They may believe in different religions or no religion at all.
