In November 2014, the Department for Education published guidance on promoting British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.
The guidance aims to help schools understand their responsibilities in this area. All schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of:
The rule of law,
Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
These values were first set out by the government in the ‘Prevent’ strategy in 2011.
All schools must now have a clear strategy for embedding these values and show how their work with pupils has been effective in doing so.
At Mansfield Green E-ACT Primary Academy we are a multicultural community within which we celebrate students and cultures from all over the world. We actively strive to support all students in learning about and deepening their understanding of British values, culture and systems.
