All schools are required by law to teach a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. Publicly funded schools are required to promote community cohesion.
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014.
The DfE has 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 Leconfield Primary School we work hard to ensure these values are firmly embedded in our school culture and are reinforced regularly.
