British Values


Living to Learn, Learning to Live, Together

Elm Grove is committed to ensure that the children are provided with a broad and balanced curriculum; one which prepares them for their future adult life and becoming a valued citizen of our every changing society.  We recognise the multi-faith and ever changing society of the United Kingdom and wish to prepare our children for the future.

Since September 2014, the Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively and ensure that British Values are taught across the school. 

The five key British Values are:

  • Democracy;
  • The Rule of Law;
  • Individual Liberty;
  • Mutual Respect;
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

At Elm Grove these values are taught across the curriculum.  


We aim to encourage children to:

  • Reflect on their own and others beliefs gaining an appreciation for other’s viewpoints;
  • Gain a sense of enjoyment in learning about themselves, others and the world around them;
  • Recognise the difference between right and wrong, consider the consequences of their behaviour, hence gaining an understanding of civil and criminal law in the United Kingdom;
  • Gain a knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system past to present, including how citizens can influence decision making through a democratic process (Voting and Election);
  • Understand, accept, reflect and celebrate diversity, showing a tolerance towards others in local, national and global communities.

We hope that the children will leave Elm Grove with the skills that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
