There is now an explicit expectation from the government and Ofsted that schools; ‘actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’ (School Inspection Handbook September 2014).

Here are the St Bart's British values:

  • Democracy
    • Our opinions matter in school
  • Respect
    • We look after each other in school
  • Tolerance
    • We accept each other's differences
  • Rule of Law
    • We follow the rules
  • Liberty
    • We are free the make choices
