British Values

At Westfield Primary School and Nursery we want to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.

We want to promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs which will help prepare them for life in modern Britain.

Westfield values and British values are built into the daily life of Westfield and frequent opportunities are given to enable children to apply these values and practice key learning behaviours that support these values.

The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy which were reiterated in 2014.  At Westfield Primary School and Nursery these values are taught through our broad, balanced and enriched curriculum.

We will actively challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
