British Values


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 Exwick Heights Primary School we uphold and teach pupils about British Values which are defined as:

  • democracy

  • rule of law

  • individual liberty

  • mutual respect

  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs


These values are taught explicitly through Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE), and Religious Education (RE) and across our broad and balanced curriculum.  We ensure that our curriculum planning and delivery includes real opportunities to explore these values.


The school also actively promotes British Values through daily collective worship and whole school systems and structures such as electing and running an active School Council, supported by Class Councils, ensuring every child has a voice.
