British Values 2020 - 2021
“British Values promote democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.” – Department for Education
At Boundary, our behaviours at playtime and at lunchtime should reflect these core 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.
For a detailed understanding of the Intent, Implementation and Impact of the teaching of British Values and how it is woven into learning and interactions between staff, pupils, parents and carers at Boundary, please click the boxes below.

- At Boundary Primary School, British Values prepares learners for life in modern Britain by equipping them to be responsible, respectful and active citizens who contribute positively to society.
- It will develop their understanding and appreciation of diversity.
- The children will learn to celebrate what we have in common and promote respect for the different protected characteristics as defined by law.
- Our children are given lots of opportunities to become responsible, respectful and active citizens who contribute positively to society.
- We ensure that pupils are provided with opportunities to demonstrate how democracy works through actively promoting the democratic processes.
- Each year the school holds a Parliament Week where all children are given the opportunity to prepare a manifesto and deliver it to their class. After a week of campaigning the children can vote for their candidate and the results are announced in assembly. School council meetings are held twice every half term and this way we ensure our pupils have a voice.
- We help children celebrate difference and encourage each pupil to feel good about themselves, where they fit in the world and appreciate diversity in others.
- Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures.
- Through the PSHE and SMSC curriculum, children learn how to be strong, active and tolerant who have rights and responsibilities as a member of a diverse society.
