Welcome to Comberton Primary School

British Values

Schools should 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. This can help schools to demonstrate how they are meeting the requirements of section 78 of the Education Act 2002, in their provision of SMSC.
 
Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Attempts to promote systems that undermine fundamental British values would be completely at odds with schools’ duty to provide SMSC.

 

 Our core values, supported by the British Values of: democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty; and the mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, are:

Respect

for all members of the school community; for the beliefs and ideas of others and the environment we create.

Responsibility

for our own actions, our own learning, and our pursuit of excellence.

Tolerance

celebrating and understanding differences, and learning from each other.

Collaboration

working together with different people for a common goal.

Perseverance

never, ever giving up. To be the best we can be.

Determination

to do the right thing and wanting to succeed.

 

Our children will encounter these principles throughout everyday school life and through our work around Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
