Promoting British Values at North Leigh CE Primary School
The DfE have recently reinforced the need "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to 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". The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and we work continually at North Leigh to ensure our community is both aware of these values and that they are reflected within our school community.

During a recent assembly we considered how different our school might be if we didn't pay regard to fundamental British Values:
