British Values at Bramfield Primary School

In line with the Department for Education's five part definition, we promote the following British Values at our school;

        democracy            the rule of Law           indiviual Liberty           mutual Respect          tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

The children and staff will encounter these principles throughout everyday school life. These values are explicitly taught through spiritual, moral, social and cultural but also in a range of other ways including weekly assemblies, Re lessons and PSHE sessions. British Values are also interwoven into our skills based curriculum so the children have meaniful contexts to explore the values.

We believe that the active promotion of British Values will enable the children to develop a real sense of community and begin to develop their understanding of their roles and responsibilities within it.

The children are given opportunities to apply their understanding of British Values through whole school approaches such as the school council and the ethos commity.

Whole School Assemblies

The children attend an assembly once a week led by the British Values leader. These assemblies focus on the importance of British Values within our school setting and the wider community. The children are exposed to lots of current events to give them meaningful contexts to discuss and then offer their ideas and opinions.

Examples of this include;


The Australian Forest Fires

Black history month

As well as discussing these events as a whole school they also have the opportunity to record their thoughts to share with the whole school community. Example of these are added to the British Values display.


This display shows how we embed the British Values in our school this display shows our thoughts on mutual respect and Black history month. 

We thought about Rosa Park and how her actions challenged the rule of law in America and individual liberty. 

Some of the responses included;

Rosa Parks knew wrong from right and stood up to the police. 

People stopped being racist after Rosa Parks protest. 


We heard the story The Proudest Blue about Asiya wearing her hijab for the first time. The story made us think about mutual respect. Here are some of our thoughts:

I think we need to respect people even if they are different to us.

We need to respect other people and their property. 

We need to respect other peoples religions



Other Assemblies

Other focus assemblies in the week include a forum and sharing assembly. 

Forum assemblies allow for lots of ideas and opinions regarding school life. Focuses have been 'how to make playtimes better, E-Safety discussions and how to raise money for charities such as Children in Need'. There is a real focus on democracy and all of the other values are very much present. 

Sharing assemblies are a celebration of the children's positive attitudes towards their learning and the wonderful work they produce. Mutual respects is a key focus in these assemblies but again all of them apply.


We have many commities within our school community which promotes democracy and all of the school community plays are part in;

            Ethos Commitee                     Eco Commitee                      Digital Leaders                   Junior Road Safety ‚Äč                Sports Commitee

Cultural Diversity

We have also had a focus in school about the importance of respecting others and understanding that everyone is different as individuals. Having a strong self-identity is encouraged and showing tolerance of others is vital.

We have used different books to support the children to develop their understanding of this.
