Learning Together For All To Succeed

British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education, we aim to actively promote British values in our school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The Key British Values are:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect and tolerance 

Below are some of the ways in which we promote these fundamental British values at St Faith’s:



  • Pupils elect their school council at the start of the year
  • Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through pupil questionnaires and Pupil Voice sessions
  • Our Behaviour policy involves rewards, which the pupils have discussed and created
  • As our pupils progress through the school our curriculum emphasises many aspects of democracy
  • Our Year 5 class attends the Junior Citizenship scheme run by the Local authority
  • Local magistrates visit our school and run workshops for our Upper KS2 pupils
  • Pupils take part in debating activities across our curriculum



  • Pupils work as a class to create their class charter at the beginning of each school year
  • Pupils attend worships and class discussions, which focus on our 3 school rules and the importance of following them
  • Pupils are always supported to distinguish right from wrong, in the classroom, during collective worship and on the playground.
  • The school manages behaviour positively; we use a range of rewards, such as praise, house points and celebration assemblies to share success
  • Pupils are encouraged to respect the law understanding that it used to protect us and keep us safe.
  • Pupils learn about road safety through annual workshops

  • Pupils are supported to develop their understanding that it is their responsibility as children of God to look after and care for His creation.

  • Online-Safety lessons are taught throughout school and parents and staff receive training on these
