Fundamental British Values, outlined by the government as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance to those with different faiths and beliefs, are an essential part of the curriculum. They are covered in a variety of different ways throughout the school, from EYFS to Year Three. All schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values are revised when necessary. At Wetherby School these values are reinforced regularly across all areas of the curriculum and the day to day life of the school.
