    British Values Statement

    British Values Statement





    At Haslucks Green Junior School we ensure that through our vision, values, rules, curriculum and teaching we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. We have a duty to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe.  We value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and we undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these.

    General overview

    Haslucks Green Junior School is committed to serving our community. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and understand the crucial role our school plays in promoting these values.

    Through our provision we:

    • Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;
    • Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England;
    • Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
    • Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England;
    • Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures;
    • Encourage respect for other people; and
    • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England
    • Promote an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process;
    • Encourage an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety;
    • Teach an understanding that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law;
    • Encourage acceptance that other 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; and teach an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination.



    To support the children in understanding how they can influence decision making through a democratic process.

    We empower our pupils by giving them opportunities to make choices about the things that they believe to be important. By valuing each ‘voice’ and by listening and responding to that voice we demonstrate that we support democracy and liberty.

    Pupils also have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our School Council. The elections of School Council Members are based solely on pupil votes.

    The principle of democracy is also explored in the History and RE curriculum as well as in assemblies. We explore how democracy and the law works in Britain in contrast to other forms of government in other countries.

    Individual Liberty

    To understand that the freedom to choose is protected in law.

    Pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.

    Pupils have key roles and responsibilities in school e.g. Year 6 prefects, School Council, Eco-committee members, Playground Champions etc.

    We educate and provide boundaries for pupils to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and an empowering education.

    Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons.

    Whether it is through choice of challenge, of how they record, choose their lunch options, or participation in extra-curricular clubs and opportunities etc., pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

    Mutual Respect

    To understand that while people may hold different views, we may show respect towards them.

    Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy revolves around our values such as ‘Respect’. Pupils have been part of discussions and assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown. These ideas are reiterated through academy and classroom rules.

    Our PSHE curriculum embodies values of Mutual Respect through units of learning such as Relationships and Being me in My World.

    Through sports coaching, we promote an attitude of equality and fairness.

    Our Buddy reading scheme promotes mutual respect between pupils across different year groups.

    The Rule of Law

    To appreciate that living under the rule of law protects us and is essential for our well-being and safety.

    The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, our school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days; when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies.

    Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws; that they govern and protect us; the responsibilities that they hold and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service etc. are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

    We have a clearly structured behaviour policy which all stakeholders understand and follow.

    The concept of the Rule of Law is also reinforced through teaching activities in our PSHE curriculum.

    Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs

    To accept that others have different faiths or beliefs (or none) and these should be accepted and tolerated.

    This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity.

    Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying are regularly held.
