British Values

All pupils at Earith Primary School are strongly encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance. At our school we ensure that pupils understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. We promote fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. As a community we actively challenge opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. We expect all staff to maintain high ethics and behaviour, within and outside school.

At Earith we reinforce these values in our daily provision for all. The school takes opportunities to actively promote British Values through our assemblies and whole school systems, structures and events.
