Clifton Primary School

Aspire to Achieve

British Values

In 2014 the DfE stated that ‘schools should 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.’ This is supported by the Prevent Strategy 2011.


At Clifton Primary School we value the diverse, ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these.


We believe that our credo, policies, practices and curriculum, all reflect, promote and reinforce the ‘fundamental British Values,.’

We believe that these fundamental British Values are implicitly and explicitly embedded in our practices and beliefs. We stimulate discussion, reflection and action about these values via: daily interactions, spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) education, circle time, personal, social, health education (PSHE), religious education, charitable work, visits and other means.
