British Values

At Netherton Infant and Nursery School, we believe in the set of British Values as defined by the Department for Education consultation (June 2014)

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy - values of:

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

and this definition has been used in the Independent School Standards since January 2013. This definition remains the same in the new standards.

Schools will be expected to focus on, and be able to show how their work with pupils is effective in, embedding fundamental British values. Actively promoting also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values.


In September 2014, the new School Council was created. Children who expressed an interest were encouraged to write their own manifestos as a home learning project before the class elections were held.

The new school councilors sit in the hall during assemblies alongside the teaching staff and meet with the Headteacher on a half termly basis. They proudly wear their badges every day!

Every class has a set of rules by which all children have agreed to follow. Children are supported to recognise the difference between right and wrong and the behaviour policy reflects that.

Friendship, achievement and respect are the core values of our school and reinforced throughout our school in everything we do.

Consideration of the main world religions and festivals is covered within our RE scheme of work but also through our assembly rota.
