British Values

The Department for Education recently reinforced the 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
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs’

Each school has been asked to publish a statement about how they ensure that pupils are developing a full and balanced understanding.  At Riverside Primary we are proud to represent a number of cultures and faiths and always strive to promote these key aspects of being a well-rounded citizen.

 Please find attached the School’s statement. British Values Statement
