British Values

At Downsway Primary School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families and the wider school community.  We reflect British values in all that we do. 

We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life, so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and to the world. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.  

As a school we are expected to promote the fundamental British Values. The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
