British Values at Corinthian Community Primary School
At Corinthian we uphold and teach pupils about British Values which are defined as:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Britain is a democracy – this means that the people in Britain vote for the people who make the laws and decide how the country is run. If we didn’t have a democracy, just one person might be able to make all the laws and that would not be fair.
The rule of the law
In Britain we have a police force who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law – this means that we are safe.
In Britain, as long as we do not break the law, we can live as we choose to and have our own opinions about things.
We might not always agree with other people, but we try to show respect for their thoughts and feelings.
We can give respect to others and we can expect other people to show us respect.
Corinthian has adopted it's own set of values using the British Values as it's inspiration. These values will be taught through all aspects of the curriculum. The school values will be displayed in class and talked about during Assemblies.
