British Values

Each half term Moorlands Primary School focuses R.E. lessons and assemblies on a different value. We discuss what the value means and how we see the value demonstrated in school.

Values Focus

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.


The Key Values are:


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


Values are embedded throughout the school through the behavioural system, the curriculum and are taught discretely to develop pupils' understanding and their importance in modern day life.


Moorlands Primary School has agreed on 6 core values that encompass the ethos of the school and guide all stakeholders in every aspect of school life.


These core values are:

  • Equality
  • Peace
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Co-operation
  • Perseverance


Other values additional to the core values are also explored throughout the school year.


  • Trust
  • Courage
  • Love
  • Determination
  • Friendship
  • Patience
  • Appreciation


  • Hope
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Unity
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Optimism
  • Humility
