British Values

British values statement

Al-Furqan Primary School is required under section 78 of the Education Act (2002) to promote the spiritual, moral, mental and physical development of pupils. As of November 2013, schools also need to promote fundamental British values as part of the school curriculum.

 

Our curriculum will:

 Enable our pupils to develop their self knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence

 Enable our pupils to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil law and criminal law of England

 Encourage our pupils to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely

 Enable our pupils to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England

 Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling our pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and others cultures

 Encourage respect for other people

 Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England

 

Al-Furqan Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Al-Furqan Primary School is dedicated to preparing pupils for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its pupils.

The DfE has suggested that pupils are taught about fundamental British values during their spiritual, moral and cultural (SMSC) classes. Pupils are expected to display knowledge of the fundamental aspects of British values. The government has outlined their expectations, stating that pupils should:

  • Understand the democratic process and how citizens can have a say in decision making.
  • Recognise the advantages to living under the rule of law and how law is essential for a safe society.
  • See that there is a separation of power and why it exists.
  • Understand the reasons for accountability of institutions and why courts maintain independence.
  • Know why freedom of religion protects all faiths, as well as those with no faith.
  • Accept that people who hold different religious beliefs should be tolerated and not be discriminated against.
  • Value the importance of identifying and combatting extremism.
