British Values

What are 'British Values'?

Schools have been asked to explain how they promote British values.


So what are ‘British’ values?


There are certain values that have been attributed to being British by the government and some institutions, and these fall into the following broad areas:


  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Acceptance, Understanding & Respect.


How do we promote 'British Values' in The Drive?

P.S.H.E. and Citizenship at The Drive Primary School encompasses a range of opportunities for children to develop themselves in a well-balanced way, beyond the academic, and to move from childhood through to adult life with support and guidance. This will encourage both an awareness of others and the growth of responsible independence. Through this, children can develop the confidence, talents and skills, to become effective individuals, motivated learners and active citizens.


Each week, a child from every class is awarded ‘The Drive Citizen Award’ in recognition of their contribution to maintaining a positive ethos in the school. At the end of each half term, these children enter a draw with the chance of winning a £5 gift voucher to further reward their efforts.
