British Values

Promoting British values

Aureus Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.Aureus Primary School is dedicated to preparing children for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its children.

The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.

The five British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of lawIn
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

The school uses strategies within the National curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for children. The examples that follow show some of the many ways Aureus Primary School seeks to embed British values.


We will have a School Council represented by children from year 1 through to year 6 and all are elected democratically each academic year. In our first year, the principle of democracy will be explored through our topic based curriculum. As the school grows pupils in year 6 will have the opportunity to apply for and become prefects for the school year. Their roles will include taking on roles of responsibility for the wider school, including doing tours of the school for new parents, supporting younger children at lunchtime and play time, helping in the school office delivering messages. The principle of democracy is explored further through our topic based curriculum.

We will also have an annual questionnaire for children on a variety of topics. The results will then be fed back to leadership and staff where actions are created to respond to the children’s views.

The Rule of Law

The importance of laws/rules, whether they be those that govern the class, the school or the country are consistently reinforced at Aureus Primary School through certificates being given at Good News Assemblies, our PSHE curriculum (Jigsaw), rewards and sanctions in the school, our diverse curriculum and our restorative approach system to fall-outs where children are encouraged to make the right choices. These combined teach the children the values and reasons behind rules and laws; that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. We also have regular visits from authorities such as the fire service and police.

Individual Liberty

Our children are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. Children are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to do this safely through our learning on e-safety, the PSHE curriculum (Jigsaw), our anti-bullying programme, circle time and visits from agencies like the NSPCC.

Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs

Mutual respect is at the heart of our values – everything we do we do together. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and the rights of others.

Our diverse curriculum helps us to learn respect and tolerance for others through finding out how history has shaped our country and the wider world (eg. Study of events in the past), through a comprehensive RE curriculum where children learn about our world faiths and ask big questions (eg.

What does it mean to live together in one world?). Through geography children learn about other cultures and the needs of others around the world (eg. study of children in China) through our Jigsaw PSHE curriculum (eg. Supporting different charities – Food bank, NSPCC, Children in Need and Comic Relief) and through visits out (eg. Different places of worship), and visitors in (eg. Local clergy to take assemblies and visitors from a range of communities and organisations).

Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural

A lot of what we cover for SMSC is mentioned above and is explained further in our SMSC policy.

To further develop SMSC we will also have regular groups to encourage self-esteem in all children, all teachers specifically meet the personal and social needs of the children in their class so that they are all able to access learning. We hold a weekly celebration assembly which celebrates various aspects of our school life including our PSHE theme. We have lunchtime helpers and stars of lunchtime who are honoured for their behaviour and help in the lunch room and on the playground.

At Aureus Primary School we strive to ensure that our children will leave us with a strong foundation of values upon which they can build a successful life and make a successful contribution to our global society.
