British Values

The Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively from September 2014, and to ensure they are taught in schools.

Mellor Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Mellor Primary School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British Values to all its pupils. The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.

The five key British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs

At Mellor Primary School, these values are reinforced regularly. The ways in which we do this can be seen here:
