British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values

 

At John Betts, we promote fundamental British values through our ethos, the curriculum and our Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship, Emotional provision.  We recognise and promote fundamental British values of:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
