British Values

According to Ofsted, the fundamental British values are:
  • democracy.
  • the rule of law.
  • individual liberty.
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

At Woodlands, we teach these values across the whole curriculum, during assemblies and throughout the school day.  We believe that modelling these values is key - tolerance and respect permeate our school culture.  Pupils elect their own school councillors and develop school and class rules.  We also plan a wide variety of extra-curricular trips (for example to the Houses of Parliament) to teach children about democracy in action and which build respect for different faiths (for example visits to a Sikh Gurdwarah, Canterbury Cathedral and a local synagogue).
