British Values

British Values at Eccleston Lane Ends 

“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.” DfE

At Eccleston Lane Ends, we have a strong school ethos (our ELE Whole School Values) that actively encourages and promotes British Values. Our curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities for our children to engage with and experience British Values. The British Values are also a key part of our 'Bricks' Curriculum which provides the foundations for our whole school curriculum offer. 

A key part of our plan is to ensure our children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect, in preparation for life in modern Britain.

The British Values are: 

  • Democracy

Britain is a democracy - this means that the people in Britain vote for the people who make the laws and decide how the country is run. 

  • Rule of Law

In Britain we have a police force and court system who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law. They have the power to punish those who do so, keeping us safe. 

  • Individual Liberty 

We are free to live as we choose and to have our own opinions as long as this does not take away someone else's freedoms or break rules or laws. 

  • Mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs

We accept and respect that other people might have different beliefs to ours. They may believe in different religions or no religion at all.
