British Values at Nightingale

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

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

As a school, we started the academic year learning about Paddington Bear.  The children thought about how Paddington would feel when he first arrived in London.  The children also thought about why Paddington had to leave deepest, darkest Peru and what difficulties he faced.

Paddington helped the children to understand what is means to be British and to explore British values.

We also celebrate diversity and are proactive in ensuring the children are tolerant of different people, cultures and beliefs.  

We are proud to be members of the Stonewall Education Champions initiative which supports schools in developing an environment where hateful behaviour of any type in not tolerated.

The following details how we, at Nightingale, promote these values alongside our own values of respect, confidence and excellence.
