British Values

Our British Values at Busbridge Junior School



The Department for Education states that there is a 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
  • mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.


The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:

  • Respect for democracy and support or participation in the democratic process
  • Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England
  • Support for equality of opportunity for all
  • Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
  • Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs

 At Busbridge CE (Aide) Junior School we believe that we reflect British values in all that we do.  Through the curriculum and a whole range and variety of extra-curricular activities and events, we encourage our children to be creative, unique, hardworking, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community, the UK community and the wider world.
