British Values

As directed under new Ofsted guidance, September 2014, we at St. Cedd’s Church of England Primary School take opportunities to actively promote British Values, defined by the government as the following:

•The rule of law
•Individual liberty
•Mutual respect
•Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Actively promoting also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views. At St. Cedd’s, values of tolerance and respect permeate all areas of school life. This engenders a climate within which pupils feel safe and secure and facilitates the fulfillment of potential. Pupil voice plays an integral part in driving the school forward and school rules at different levels are seen as the foundation upon which this can be achieved.

The following are a selection of activities and external accreditations that are evidence of our commitment to British values.

  • Year 6 take part in Crucial Crew challenge
  • We have elected School Council
  • Our broad and balanced curriculum teaches elements of democracy, civic responsibility, rules and laws, the monarchy, equality, values and virtues, environmental awareness and understanding of other faiths
  • We take part in visits to different places of worship
  • We have visitors from other faiths
  • We have links with schools in Africa and China
  • We had an Good judgement in SIAMS inspection April 2018
