Promoting British Values

British Values Statement

The document sets out how we, at Chorley New Road Primary School, develop and promote British Values throughout our school and within our curriculum.

The Government set out its initial definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and supplemented this with additional guidance in November 2014:

Publishing the guidance Lord Nash said:

“We want every school to promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.”

A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background. This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.


British Values:

·      Democracy

·      The Rule of Law

·      Individual Liberty

·      Mutual Respect

·      Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs

To do this the children will develop:

·         an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process

·         an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law

·         an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

·         an understanding of the importance of identifying and combating discrimination

The mission statement and aims of the school carefully reflect these values, and the whole school strives to uphold them.


Mission Statement

Challenge, Nurture, Respect

We aim as a school to develop young people to recognise their full potential in all aspects of Life; so they can become confident, independent and resilient individuals, who are compassionate, forgiving, hopeful and trusting as members of our family.



1.     To provide a rich, vibrant creative curriculum to meet the needs of all pupils

2.    To enable all children to enjoy learning in a range of ways, allowing each child to excel and achieve to their full potential, in preparation for their future life.

3.    To become confident, independent individuals who are ambitious for themselves and understanding and respectful of others.

4.    To help our children to develop the skills to live within, learn from and contribute to their local and wider community, developing a cultural identity within their community. 

The table below is an indication of where we can find evidence to show that these values are an intrinsic part of school life at Chorley New Road.
