British Values

The 5 British Values are:



The Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance of others of different faiths and beliefs


As a school that serves a richly diverse community, we take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, generate a respect for difference and individual rights seriously. Through our Values and Ethos, Allen Edwards ensures that British Values flow throughout the school, in all that we believe and do as a community school.

  • Assemblies and collective worship
  • Our PSHE Curriculum through which British Values is evident throughout

  • Our school Ambassador Programme which supports mutual respect, friendship, promotion of the school’s values
  • A geography curriculum that covers global citizenship
  • History curriculum which analyses UK and World Events and which looks at events which have tested British Values
  • A religious education curriculum that teaches about the beliefs and practices of all major religious groups
