British Values


Promoting British Values at Cinnamon Brow C of E Primary School.

The DfE have reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

At Cinnamon Brow we have a set of Christian Values which are core to the ethos of our school and which support British Values.  These are: Respect, Hope, Compassion, Forgiveness, Thankfulness and Perseverance.

The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated in 2014. At Cinnamon Brow these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways:

Mutual Respect

Respect is a fundamental school Christian value, around which inspires much of the work of the school. We pay explicit attention to this as part of our RE and PSHE curriculum.

Respect is a core school rule that is discussed deeply, starting with self respect and respect for others including the world, it's people and the environment.


The Rule of Law

At Cinnamon Brow the rules that govern our classes, the school and the country are constantly reinforced throughout the school. Our behviour policy is aligned to an agreed set of rules which all the children are aware of. The three core rules of Cinnamon Brow are: Be Ready, Be Safe, Be Respectful.

As the children progress through KS2, they learn more about 'Rules for Living' through RE teaching and through PSHE relationship teaching.


This is being part of a successful working team. Democracy is a British value that children meet when discussing respect and fairness.  As children move through KS2, they learn about the history of democracy and the impact that it has on life with Britain.

Annually we hold an election for our School Parliament which is launched on the international day of Democracy in September. 



Children at Cinnamon Brow learn and understand about their place in a culturally diverse society. We give the children opportunities to experience diversity in our local community and around the world.

Examples of this are:

  • School Diversity Week
  • Inclusion Week
  • Interfaith Week
  • Global Citizens group work

Individual Liberty

Our values based discussions and acts of worship support discussion about self respect and self worth in relation to the individual.

The philosophy of teaching and learning places emphasis on the right to have our own thoughts and evidence based views.

Children are strongly encouraged to develop independence in their learning and to think for themselves. 

Through teaching of the wider curriculum, we ensure that the children see their role in fighting against injustice and are advocates of courageous advocacy.
