The Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School British Values 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 these values have been reiterated this year (2015). At The Holy Spirit we actively promote British Values through our Mission Statement, Catholic ethos and Christian values. This underpins all our relationships, mutual respect, school policies, procedures and systems. We also actively promote the British values through ensuring that our curriculum planning and delivery includes real opportunities for exploring these values. As a Catholic school the gospel values are part of each and every lesson, interaction or relationship. They are central to our curriculum and help to educate our children and prepare them for life in modern Britain.
