Broom Valley Community School

“Together We Dare To Dream Big”

British Values

The Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively from September 2014, and to ensure they are taught in schools.

All at Broom Valley Community School are committed to serving our community. We recognise the multi- cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom and understands the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation  or radicalisation  by those wishing to  unduly,  or illegally, influence them.

We follow equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Broom Valley Community School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. The five key British Values are:

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

The school uses strategies within the national curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes  for  students.  Click the link below to explore our PSHE curriculum and see some of the ways that British Values are woven into our curriculum:
