British Values



Promoting British Values at Bulwell St Mary's Primary School


The DfE have recently reinforced the need "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation of all schools to promote the fundamental British values of:


the rule of law,

individual liberty and

mutual respect and tolerance of

those with different faiths and beliefs."


Bulwell St Mary’s Church of England  Primary School is committed to serving its community and surrounding areas. It recognises the multi cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the

United Kingdom, and therefore those it serves. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.


Our school, as a ‘Community School’, accepts admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or none.

It follows the policies outlined by its governing body regarding equal opportunities, which

guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. It seeks to serve all.


The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British values in the ‘Prevent Strategy’ - values of:

• Democracy

• The rule of law

• Individual liberty

• Mutual respect

• Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
