Our 'Great British' Values

The Department for Education has 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”.


The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister this year.  At Riverview Junior School these values are carefully addressed using our high quality teaching and an exciting curriculum where the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is woven into the ethos of the school.


We have developed an approach that enables children to develop their understanding of these values throughout their time at our school in order that they can demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully and contribute positively to life in modern Britain
