Our British Values Background

At Glebe Primary School, we believe in the importance of values that make Britain special. The government tells us about five important values: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for different faiths and beliefs. We think about these values a lot and do lots of things in our school to show what they mean. We do our utmost to ensure our children are prepared for the next step in their life-long learning journey. We provide a broad and balanced academic curriculum with a wide range of cultural, artistic, sporting and social opportunities. Our school is a safe and happy environment and central to our school is a belief in respect – respect for yourself, respect for others and respect for the environment

At Glebe Primary School, we are proud of our British values and work hard to make sure everyone feels included and respected.

1. Democracy

We like to hear what everyone thinks. That’s why we have a school council where children can talk about things that matter to them. We also have House Captains and Prefects who are voted for by other students. They help make decisions too.

2. The Rule of Law

We know that rules are important to keep everyone safe. We learn about rules in class, at assemblies, and even from special visitors like the Police and Fire Service. We have prefects and playleaders who help us follow the rules and keep our school a great place to learn.

3. Individual Liberty

We believe that everyone should have the freedom to make choices. In our school, we learn how to make good choices in a safe place. We have lots of clubs and activities to choose from, and we learn how to use the internet safely too.

4. Mutual Respect

Being kind and respectful is really important at Glebe Primary School. We treat each other nicely and understand that our actions can affect others. We all deserve respect!

5. Tolerance

Even though we might not all believe the same things, we celebrate our differences. We learn about different faiths and cultures in our lessons and assemblies. Sometimes, we even visit places of worship to learn more.
