British Values

Promoting British Values at Hurdsfield Primary School and Nursery


The school takes opportunities to promote British Values, defined by the government as the following:


  • Democracy
    • Active Learning Council (from September 2019)
    • Promotion of emotional and mental health via Mental Health Ambassadors
    • Our curriculum is built around promoting our learners to ask and find the answers to questions.  We teach our children to challenge what they see, enquire and aspire to be the best version of them they can be.
  • The Rule of Law
    • Our Behaviour Policy is based on ensuring our children understand that actions have consequences and clear expectations for our children of both learning and social behaviour.
    • Clear and high expectations for learning and behaviour are being embedded across the school and are underpinned by our school motto and 'Behaviour for Learning Code'.
  • Individual Liberty
    • Children are encouraged to be individual and celebrate their uniqueness through our curriculum.
    • We celebrate individuality in our weekly Celebration Assemblies which promote children's individual strengths across the whole school community. 
  • Mutual Respect
    • We are all different but we are all equal.  Children are taught to be respectful of each other's differences and celebrate them.  In lessons, we work collaboratively and draw on each other's strengths to reach a common goal.
    • Weekly Celebration Assembly that promotes individual and group achievements.  
    • Team Captains who lead their team and develop their own rewards to motivate their team.
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
    • We welcome children and families who express a range of faiths and beliefs in school. 


We understand that to actively promote and embed British Values, we need to challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including extremist views.


Our new curriculum teaches all of our children the importance of being local, national and global citizens; embracing British Values.  We teach tolerance, respect, religious freedom, diversity and the rule of law.  Please see our curriculum model page for support.

Everyone is different therefore we are the same!
