Our British Values

At The Hawthorns Primary School we seek to 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. In November 2014, the DfE published guidance on promoting these values in school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.

The fundamental British values at The Hawthorns Primary School are implicitly embedded in the 2014 Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and in Key stage 1 and 2  through our Aspirational Qualities, including listening with understanding and being empathetic, managing impulsivity and thinking interdependently.

The two documents attached demonstrate the fundamental British values in practice here at The Hawthorns Primary School.
