British Values

The British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are embedded within all areas of school life.

We provide opportunities for children to explore their understanding and beliefs in a safe and supportive environment. We explore and reflect upon British Values within Religious Education, PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) and regular whole school and class assemblies.


We have a school council which meets every three weeks with a senior member of staff to lead school developments and discuss any issues that arise. The school council are voted for by their peers and remain in position for the academic year. The council bring ideas from their class mates and they are genuinely able to effect change within the school. During the election process, children learn about democracy.

The Rule of Law 

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced at Woolston CP. Pupils are taught from an early age the rules and values of the school.

Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind rules and laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service help to reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty 

At Woolston CP, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.

As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make informed choices, through a safe environment and an empowering education. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) lessons.

Mutual Respect 

Mutual respect is at the heart of our values. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. All members of the school community treat each other with respect.

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs 

We actively promote diversity through our studies of different faiths and cultures. Religious Education lessons and PSHCE lessons reinforce messages of tolerance and respect for others.

Members of different faiths and religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school. The children find out about places of worship that are important to different faiths.
