British Values Week
We are going to be learning about British Values. There will be a focus for every day of the week on British Values. These are ideas we will be learning about in form time, assemblies and in smaller workshops throughout the week. The topics that will be covered are:
- Monday: Democracy
- Tuesday: The Rule of Law
- Wednesday: Individual Liberty
- Thursday: Mutual Respect
- Friday: Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs
In addition to the form time activities there will be morning assemblies held which will be focussing on “The Monarchy” for Year 7 through to Year 11
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. If we didn’t have a democracy, just one person might be able to make all the laws and that would not be fair.
The Rule of the Law
In Britain we have a police force who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law – this means that we are safe.
In Britain, as long as we do not break the law, we can live as we choose to and have our own opinions about things.
We might not always agree with other people, but we try to show respect for their thoughts and feelings.
We can give respect to others and we can expect other people to show us respect.
Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs
In Britain we accept that other people might have different beliefs than ours and they may believe in different religions.
