British Values

British Values at Dobwalls

As part of our curriculum we try to actively promote ‘fundamental British values’ and develop children's understanding of what it means to be British.’ This content is delivered to children through a range of lessons including: One Decision RSE curriculum, RE and individual topics such as Our Cornwall in Year 3.  They are also delivered during weekly assemblies.  Please the link below for the long term overview to ensure coverage.

As part of this programme of study pupils will:

  • Describe their own identities and the groups that they feel they belong to;
  • Recognise different identities and experiences;
  • Appreciate that identity consists of many factors;
  • Recognise that each person’s identity is unique and can change; and begin to understand the idea of stereotypes.

The teaching of British Values will focus on:

  • Democracy – respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process;
  • The rule of law – respect for the basis on which the law is made
  • Equality – support for equality of opportunity for all
  • Individual liberty – support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
  • Mutual respect – respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other belief

Interest in exploring, improving understanding of and showing respect for different faiths and cultural diversity and the extent to which they understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity, as shown by their tolerance and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities should be interwoven within strands.
