British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values

The Department for Education (Dfe) have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to 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.”


In June 2014, the then secretary of state for education, Michael Gove, announced that schools would be required to promote British values from September 2014. Within the Galaxy Trust these values are reinforced regularly through a broad and balanced curriculum across our schools, in ways sympathetic to our curriculum visions.


At Oakfield, they underpin every aspect of our teaching and learning.


The attached document explains our approach in more detail.

Within the Galaxy Trust a broad Curriculum is covered.  We follow the International Primary Curriculum and within there are ample opportunities where British Values are taught and addressed.
