Preparing for Life in Modern Britain

We agree with the Department for Education’s five part definition of British Values:

• Democracy
• The rule of law
• Individual liberty
• Mutual respect
• Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

We believe it is incredibly important that these British Values permeate through every school. At Michael Syddall Primary School, you will encounter these values throughout our everyday school life. The British Values, along with our Christian Values and My Personal Best attributes, act as a golden thread through our school. We believe that our Christian identity plays an important role in upholding British Values within our school community.
