British Values

British Values

At Hutton Rudby Primary School we are committed to providing every child with an excellent education.

We believe in following the Government’s guidelines:

  • “Schools should 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.”
  • “Pupils must be encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.”
  • “It is expected that pupils should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.”

In line with Government requirements, at Hutton Rudby Primary School we have developed the curriculum in order to illustrate our commitment to ‘British Values’.  We value the diversity and differences of all our pupils and celebrate this through our culture, ethos, approach to lessons and our respectful relationships we promote.  Commitment and celebration of diversity makes us collectively stronger, tolerant and respectful to all.

Our curriculum is devoted to British Values. We use the ‘Picture news’ learning resources and encourage transparency and openness in pupil lead discussions about current affairs news topics each week, linked to an individual British Value.

Additionally, in Key Stage 2, pupils this year will undertake a topic about World War 1 and its impact upon our society, then and now.  Remembrance Day is commemorated and a two minute’s silence is observed. Throughout the school, a number of influential people and eras are studied in our Cornerstones curriculum that supports all aspects of modern day Britain.

We have read the Government’s Paper on “Promoting fundamental British values as part of SMSC in Schools” (November 2014). It outlines the Departmental advice for maintained schools from the Department for Education. Download the document
