Pelham Primary School - Promoting British Values


In accordance with statutory guidance, Pelham Primary School identifies opportunities to actively promote a set of recognised British Values. These are defined as follows:



Children at Pelham Primary School have opportunities to develop an understanding of democracy and how citizens can influence the decision making process through debating and the voting process. Children throughout the school have opportunities to take place in the voting process, from voting for members of the School Improvement and Eco Councils as well as for House Captains.


Individual Liberty

Children at Pelham Primary School will develop an understanding that people have the freedom to make choices and this includes holding other faiths or beliefs that are protected by law.


Rule of Law

Children at Pelham Primary School will develop an appreciation for the rule of law and how this protects individual citizens and is essential for their well being and safety.


Respect and Tolerance

Children at Pelham Primary School are taught to show mutual respect to all adults and children and to be tolerant towards those who may hold different views or beliefs to themselves.
