In 2011, the government defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We promote these values through our own school values, curriculum and enrichment activities.

Children and staff have worked together during PSHE lessons and assemblies to think more about how we promote these values.
