Exploring British Values

GLP_Approved Training_RGB

All maintained schools must meet the requirements set out in section 78 of the Education Act 2002 and promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of their pupils. Through ensuring pupils’ SMSC development, schools can also demonstrate they are actively promoting fundamental British values’

Department for Education 2014


Respect, integrity, liberty! All schools now have a duty to promote fundamental British values.  This presents both opportunities and challenges.  This course aims to help all schools develop a whole school approach to British values, whether it’s reflecting on your school ethos, developing a new policy, enriching your curriculum, creating school displays or improving pupil voice.


We aim to avoid narrow definitions and raise the profile of values education in your school to help children and young people make sense of the world, improve how they interact with other people and develop the sort of person they are becoming.
