British Values

All Saints’ and St Richard’s Church of England Primary School (ASSR) has an obligation under section 78 of the Education Act (2002) to promote the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of pupils at the school, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum.


The British Values are defined as:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

At ASSR we are committed to actively promoting British values and this forms part of our wider work in a school with children in relation to their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education (SMSC). At the heart of these values, lie good relationships in which teachers and pupils work together towards common goals. 


Our school council are elected democratically in each year group at the start of an academic year. The council members agree to serve the members of their community and act as advocates on behalf of all children at ASSR. 

"All pupils have a voice at our school."

"We can ask questions and make suggestions about how our school works."

"The adults listen and help us to share our ideas."




For full information on how we, at All Saints’ & St Richard’s, strive to promote British Values please see our Promoting British Values Policy.

In addition to promoting British Values, the school also has a statutory duty to safeguard our children from potential risks of extremism and radicalisation. This is known as the ‘Prevent Duty’. For full information please see our full Preventing Extremism Policy.
