British Values at Froebelian

British Values at Froebelian

At Froebelian we teach the five basic British values, ensuring children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.

The Five basic British Values

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Following Lord Nash’s guidelines, at Froebelian we actively encourage:

  • An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
  • An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
  • An acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
  • An understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination

Froebelian promotes British values by:

  • Including age appropriate material on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries
  • Ensuring all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes such as The Froebelian Pupil Council whose members are voted for by the pupils
  • Use opportunities such as general or local elections to hold mock elections to promote fundamental British values and provide pupils with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view
  • Running extra-curricular activity, such as Current Affairs and Philosophy Club
