Promoting British Values at Dovelands Primary School
When defining the social element of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC) OFSTED September 2014 states. ‘The social development of pupils is shown by their…... acceptance and engagement with 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 pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain’.
At Dovelands we have been looking at and reflecting on what British Values mean to us. Mutual respect and tolerance are values which we regularly reinforce in age appropriate ways.
We would like our school community to be proud of our country, and feel that learning how to contribute as effective citizens is an important process, starting at an early age.
