British Values at Old Sarum Primary School
Old Sarum on the outskirts of Salisbury is a growing vibrant community. Our community Primary School is committed to, and recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. We understand the important and vital role we have in ensuring that we promote British Values within all that we do to ensure groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
Our policies and procedures ensure no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar is tolerated. We understand that preparing children for their adult life beyond the curriculum and school is of paramount importance and ensure that we promote and reinforce British values throughout their time with us.
All schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught . The government set out its definition of “British Values” in its 2011 “Prevent Strategy”; These are the values of:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
We believe that the best way to promote British values in our school is by example. We aim to embody democracy in the way we work and within the ethos and culture of Old Sarum Primary School. We have a clear and consistent framework of rules, regulations and high expectations which are there for the benefit of us all.
