Promoting British Values

Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain

At Hambleton CE Primary School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that 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 our RE, PSHE and school Collective Worship provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
Our school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown through sporting events, a range of visits and extensive residential experiences from Year 2. Children’s strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform to embrace and value difference in our society.
