What our children think about the British Values

March 2023


Mutual tolerance and respect

Kai- It is important because no one would be friends otherwise. Just because someone looks different, doesn't mean they're not a nice person. We should respect and not judge a book by its cover.

Theo- If no one respected each other, the world would not be peaceful. We respect other people's religions at this school.

Olly- If no one respected each other, it might cause arguments. If someone believes in something, you should respect that, even if you don't believe in it. 

Emre- Respecting is important. 

All- We show respect at our school.


Individual Liberty

Luca- If everyone is the same, it could cause arguments. 

Kaydon- Don't let other people change who you are. 

Olly- Life would be boring. 

Emre- Be yourself. It's good to be different.

All- We can be ourselves at this school.  


The Rule of Law

Olly- This is to keep things equal. If you follow the law, you won't be arrested. 

Theo- It would be chaos without rules and laws.

Kai- We can still have peace and freedom but within the law. We have to follow them. 

Emre- We have to follow the rules to keep the peace. 

All- We have to follow rules. We follow rules at this school. 



Kaydon- This is a conversation to vote for things. 

Luca- If one person decided things, it might cause arguments. 

Theo- It is a vote. We voted for each other for the school council. Sometimes we vote to do either Maths or English first. Parliament has to vote for new leaders.
