British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values at Forest Town Primary School.

The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on 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 Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated in Promoting Fundamental British Values as part of SMSC in Schools, DfE November 2014.


At Forest Town Primary School these values are reinforced regularly, alongside our core values.

Our core values are:

  • Consideration
  • Respect
  • Honesty & Trust
  • Accountability
  • Humility
  • Determination
  • Belief
