British Values


British Values at Moorhill

At Moorhill Primary School we recognise that the personal development of children - spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC) - plays a significant role in their ability to learn and achieve. This fulfils our obligation and requirements as set out in section 78 of the Education Act (2002).

We also recognise the importance of key British Values:

  • mutual respect for, and tolerance of those, with different faiths & beliefs, & for those without faith;
  • individual liberty;
  • the rule of law;
  • and democracy.

We have a duty to actively promote and embed these values and to challenge pupils, staff or parents who express extremist views contrary to fundamental British values. We want to ensure pupils are prepared for life in modern Britain by the active promotion of and respect of British values.

We have created a warm and supportive environment which enables every child to feel happy, safe and valued. Our caring ethos enriches our children making them confident learners ready to embrace their future.

We strive to provide and maintain for our pupils an education that provides opportunities so that they can explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.
