Why do we teach them?
The Department for Education (DfE) set out obligations for maintained schools to teach and promote British Values under the Education Act (2002).
Within this, we are required to (and, quite frankly believe in and enjoy) teach children the fundamentals of spiritual, moral, cultural, metal and physical development. Within these guidelines, we teach British Values and SMSC within our curriculum, assemblies, discussion and vision and values.
If you are interested, please see the DfE’s guidance.
How do we celebrate these in our school?
Our assemblies support and celebrate British Values and our bespoke PSHE scheme of work teaches them.
