British Values

British Values at North Petherton Primary School

As a school, we have a duty to 'actively promote' the fundamental British values.


British values are:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those with different, faiths and beliefs


At North Petherton Primary School, we ensure the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed, and lived out through the ethos and work of the school.

All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and in particular, RE, PSHE and assemblies provide opportunities to deepen and develop understanding.

We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open minded and independent individuals who are respectful of themselves and of others so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible, and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world.
