'Believe, Excite, Succeed, Together' 

Modern British Values at Welbourn Church of England Primary School

DfE definition (2014)

‘Schools should 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’




At Welbourn Church of England Primary School we recognise, promote and teach Modern British Values through our curriculum and enrichment activities which are interwoven into our everyday timetables. All staff strive to ensure that our pupils leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The British Values are:

•    Democracy
•    Rule of Law
•    Individual Liberty
•    Mutual Respect
•    Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs 

Each term, we focus on one of the Values and explore them through our Collective Worship themes and PSHE sessions in class:

  • Autumn Term 1 - Democracy
  • Autumn Term 2 - Mutual Respect
  • Spring Term 1 - Individual Liberty
  • Spring Term 2 - Tolerance
  • Summer Term 1 - Rule of Law
  • Summer Term 2 - The best of being British
