Teaching British Values

Promoting British Values at Clockhouse Primary School


At Clockhouse Primary School we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.


At Clockhouse these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways:



Democracy is embedded within the life of the school. Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our School and Class Parliament and Pupil Questionnaires. Our whole school approach to behaviour – the Clockhouse Code is agreed with the children at the beginning of each year.


The Rule of Law:

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that the school abide by are consistently reinforced by all during every school day. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws and rules and with this comes an understanding which is reinforced of the consequences of these being broken.. Visits from pillars of the community such as the Police, Fire Service etc. are part of our curriculum and help to reinforce this message.


Individual Liberty:

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for the children to make safe choices, through the provision of a safe environment and empowering education. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our Online Safety and PSHE lessons. Our curriculum provides a safe platform from which children can express their views about a range of issues, knowing that these views will be respected and listened to.


Mutual Respect:

Part of our school ethos and approach revolves around kindness and respect for all. This is further reinforced by our three school rules, the ‘Three R’s – ‘Ready, Respectful, Responsible’ An ethos of mutual respect between all aspects of the school community resonates throughout and is developed at any given opportunity.


Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs:

This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying have been followed and supported by learning in RE and PSHE. The school gives high profile to the range of languages spoken in classes. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.
