SMSC and British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values.


Shirley Heath Junior School approaches the promotion of fundamental

British values in line with the Government’s PREVENT theme of the anti-terrorist

strategy CONTEST. These British Values are: democracy; individual liberty; the rule of

law; mutual respect; tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Each is

defined below and placed in a school context through the use of examples. It is everyone’s duty to ensure they do not undermine these fundamental British values as detailed in the current Teacher Standards Part Two:Personal and Professional Conduct.
