British Values

British Values are an important part of school life at Bessacarr Primary and are incorporated into many aspects of our curriculum and daily school life.


British values are broken into 4 key areas :

Democracy 

  • A culture built upon freedom and equality, where everyone is aware of their rights and responsibilities.
  • Everybody has the right to have their voice heard.

Rule of Law 

  • The need for rules and laws to make a happy, safe and secure environment to live and work in.

Individual Liberty

  • Protection of your rights and the rights of others around you.
  • Allowing people to be independent thinkers who can make their own choices.

Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. 

  • Understanding that we all don't share the same beliefs and values.
  • Respecting those values, ideas and beliefs of others whilst not imposing our own onto them.
