British Values Statement
The DfE have recently reinforced the need for all schools to promote “the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The term ‘British values’ might be slightly misleading as these values are integral to so many countries throughout the world and very much reflect the diversity of our school.
The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by successive Governments. Click here to see how these values are reinforced regularly at Talbot Primary School.
MP visit - December 2018
Local MP, Fabian Hamilton, visited us to meet our Key Stage 2 pupils in school. He led an assembly, in which he told us all about his family and how events in their lives led them to Leeds. He then went on to meet our School Council and led a discussion on how to resolve conflict. It was a very informative session which the children found very interesting, especially considering recent political events!
British Values in the Curriculum
British values are covered in assemblies, PSHE lessons, through the School Council and in the wider curriculum. This is because it informs part of our whole school approach.
