There is now an expectation that all schools will promote the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.  Ofsted reviews how well schools promote these values as part of the evaluation of how well schools promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

  • meet the national expectation for all schools to teach British Values within their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development programmes
  • understand how British values can best be taught in ways that are inclusive of the cultures and values represented within Britain’s diverse society
  • develop an appreciation of the challenges felt by bi-cultural pupils, especially those from 1st generation migrant families
  • begin to identify strategies that promotes resilience, self-respect and cultural cohesion to reduce pupils’ vulnerabilities and the risk of some being radicalised.

  • Implications for bi-cultural pupils growing up and living in predominantly mono-cultural families
