British Values

What are British Values?


There are 5 key British Values which we as a school and as individuals work towards and uphold:




                       The Rule of Law

                      Individual Liberty

                       Mutual Respect





Our work in school, our behaviours at playtime and at lunchtime should reflect these values. As a school, we take part in activities throughout the year which aim to develop our knowledge and understanding of these values, helping us to become better citizens.



How we Promote it


Links to school characteristics.
Responsibility, Tolerance, Integrity, Honesty, Trust

  • We have a School Council where members are elected by pupils. This is used as an opportunity to promote and teach respect about democracy and the electoral process.

There are rules for exhibiting responsible actions and respectful behaviour, demonstration of our values is recognised through such things as weekly achievement awards (Star of the Week) and  house team trophies,
  • Through our school assemblies, and events such as Sports Day, children are taught how to earn trust and respect and are supported to develop a strong sense of morality; knowing right from wrong and doing the right thing and making good choices even when it's difficult.


How we Promote it

Individual Liberty

Links to school characteristics:
Honesty, Courage, Teamwork, Perseverance, Determination, Curiosity

  • Through our school characteristics, assemblies and the PSHE programme, children are taught about personal responsibility, choices, ambition and aspiration. They are encouraged to take opportunities to follow their interests in art, music, sport and a range of extra-curricular clubs that support these choices and interests are available.
  • Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, including online. This is done through computing lessons and outside organisations, as well as through the PSHE curriculum.

Mutual Respect

Links to school characteristics:
Appreciation, Teamwork, honesty, Understanding, Tolerance, Courage, Perseverance, Determination, Loyalty, Acceptance.

  • Children are taught to understand the importance of identifiying and combatting discrimination.

  • We have high expectations about pupil conduct and this is reflected in our Behaviour Policy, Always badges and the Boundary Promises.

  • Children are taught to respect each other, to be co-operative and collaborative and to look for similarities while being understanding of differences.

  • Mutual respect is also promoted through additional PSHE lessons and special days, such as Anti- Bullying Day.

  • EAL support/provision is appropriate, caring and respectful; for adults and children. We also have cultural days.



How we Promote it

Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

Links to school characteristics:
Appreciation, Teamwork, Honesty, Understanding, Tolerance, Courage, Perseverance, Determination, Acceptance.




  • We teach children that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law.

  • This is supplemented by celebrations of significant religious festivals such as Diwali.
  • Visits are made by local religious groups and people such as the local vicar,

A Visit from the Deputy Lord Leiutenant of Lancashire


Commonwealth Day.


To support and promote British Values, children in KS2 were delighted to welcome John Barnett MBE, DL the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire.


During his visit, he captivated the children by talking about his important role, representing HM The Queen, and to explain the Commonwealth and the part Britain plays within it. The children were fascinated by his military style uniform that included a sword and his MBE medal. As a finale, he taught them how to salute.


Paige in year 3 said "There are 53 countries in the Commonwealth."


Paulina said “About a third of the world is made up of Commonwealth countries."


Spring Term


This term the children have been busy promoting British Values

in subjects such as, PSHE, ICT and PE.



Here are some examples of their work.


Children in Need

The whole school supported this special day by wearing something spotty and donating 50p to the charity.

"We support Children in Need Because we want to help the people who have disabilities and who are ill."

"We support Children in Need by bringing in 50p to give to people who are young carers, ill or homeless."



Y4 worked with Fit2Go developing teamwork skills and fitness by playing dodgeball.

"We even threw balls at Mrs Fielding" Callum.


Y5- MIND Bounce Forward Programme.


This project lasted ten weeks and children learnt to recognise their own worth and identify positive things about themselves and others. They did this through dealing with emotions, resilience and solving problems. In the final week the children delivered a whole school assembly, spreading the resilience message and bringing the Resilience Revolution to the rest of Blackpool.

Boundary Remembrance Day 


On Friday 10th November, each pupil from Boundary Primary School made and planted their poppy in the school remembrance garden. On each poppy they had written the name of a soldier who had died in the First World War.


Afterwards, the school took part in a service where the pupils remembered these soldiers and others who had sacrificed their lives in past and present conflicts. The service was led by Year 6 and Reverend Peter was also present.


During the afternoon, the pupils had further opportunities to reflect as they took part in a whole school art afternoon based around the theme of poppies, using different techniques, such as collage, print and sketching.   

"When the fighting stopped poppies grew on the battle field." Madaline. 


"It is called Remembrance day because we remember the soldiers who fought for us." Oliver 


"Whole families went to the war. The men fought and the women were nurses." Storm

Learning About Diwali October 2017 

By Tyler Y6 


What is Diwali?

The festival coincides with Hindu New year and light, seen as a metaphor for self-improvement, represents new beginnings. Each faith has its own reasons to celebrate the festival, however, for many, Diwali celebrates the legend of Lord Rama and his wife Sita returning to their kingdom in northern India from exile after defeating the demon king Ravanna in 15th century BC.
Diwali also pays tribute to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, and lanterns are lit to guide her into people's homes.

Diwali is perhaps the most well-known of the Hindu festivals.
The word Diwali means 'rows of lighted lamps'. Diwali is known as the 'festival of lights' because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small earthenware oil lamps called diyas.
Why do Hindus celebrate Diwali?
A Hindu quoted “We celebrate Diwali to commemorate the day when Lord Rama returned to his kingdom, the city of Ayodhya.” Why all of the lights? “Diwali, like the day Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya, is a new moon, a moonless night. In order to light his path in the pitch black, the residents of Ayodhya lit diyas (small oil lamps) lighting up the city in divine splendor.”
How do Hindus celebrate Diwali?
Hindus celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, mainly by lighting earthenware oil lamps called diyas and placing them around temples, homes and businesses or setting them to float upon bodies of water.They also clean their homes, wear festive new clothes, exchange gifts of sweets and dried fruits, set off fireworks, start new business account books, open their doors and windows to admit prosperity, and indulge in gambling.

Kindness Day

Friday 31st March 2017


To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana.


It has been twenty years since her death, but Princess Diana still continues to inspire us with her commitment to kindness and compassion.


After a whole school assembly Monday morning, the children were encouraged throughout the week to pass kindness on both at school and at home.


"I think Ellie is kind because she helped me calm down when I was ANGRY!"


"Today I have shown kindness by helping Lyndsey with her room."


"Today I showed kindness by helping Kianna when she had no-one to play with."


"I showed kindness when I helped my baby walk."


"I showed kindness when I helped my mum with the chores."
